  • Begin with your feet about three feet apart, toes pointed out. Bend your knees and come into a wide squat, with your knees over your ankles, and most of your weight in your heels. Place your hands on your hips or in a fist in front of your chest for stability.
  • Hold this squat position with your hips low. With control, take 10 steps forward, then take 10 steps back. This counts as one set. Complete five sets without stopping.
  • For more of a challenge, hold a dumbbell in each hand above your head or rest them on your shoulders.
