    Keeping your knees bent, drive your hips back and then thrust them forward so your arms raise to about shoulder height. In one movement, reverse the motion to return to the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Squeeze your glutes at the top of each rep.
  • Start the movement with your hips, not your knees.
  • Keep your back straight throughout the motion.
