standing with your feet hip-distance apart, toes slightly turned out.

and your bum backwards. Straighten up to complete the move.

depends on you and the amount of space you have to workout in. Begin by
stepping one foot forward, about hip distance wide. Slowly bend your

angle for about eight counts, then lower it back down. Repeat on the

you. Keep your stomach muscles tight and clench your bum. Hold the
