Basic Squat With Side Leg Lift

  • Stand with your feet shoulder-width distance apart, feet parallel. Bend your knees, lowering your hips deeply, so your thighs are parallel with the floor, keeping your weight back in your heels.
  • Then rise back up, straightening the legs completely and lifting the right leg out to the side, squeezing the outer glute.
  • As you step the foot back into shoulder-width distance position, squat down again. Then stand up and do a side leg lift on the left side. Lower the leg back to the starting position.
  • This counts as one rep. Complete as many as you can for 30 seconds.
