Stand with your feet together and hands by your sides or in front of your chest. Take one large step to the right side, allowing your body weight to shift to the right foot as it makes contact with the floor. The left knee should remain straight as the right leg accepts a majority of the weight. Push off the floor with the right foot and return to the starting position. Repeat this on the left side. Bending the knee 90 degrees is ideal, but only go as low as you can while still feeling pain-free and stable. Throughout the movement, be sure to keep the chest and shoulders in an upright position. This movement should be quicker than the regular squat because it requires the use of muscular power to push off the floor and return to starting position. Perform one to three sets of eight to 12 repetitions.
