– Keeping your head facing forward, your back straight, and your chest high, squat down by bending your hips back while allowing knees to come forward slightly, keeping your back straight and knees pointed in the same direction as your feet. Descend until your thighs are at parallel, or just past parallel to floor.

– Return to the starting position by extending your knees and hips until your legs are straight.

15 second rest

– Grab a pair of dumbbells, bend at your hips and knees, and lower your torso until it’s almost parallel to the floor. Let the weights hang at arm’s length from your shoulders.

– Stand with your feet together and your arms raised in front to shoulder height,  Pull your shoulders down and back without arching your low back

– Slowly lift one foot off the floor, stabilizing your body on the supporting leg. Hold this position momentarily before stepping forward. The raised leg should initiate contact with a heel strike first. Avoid any sideways tilting or swaying in your upper body and try not to move the stance foot.

– As you lunge forward, focus more on dropping your hips towards the floor rather than driving your hips forward. Continue lowering your body to a comfortable position or until your front thigh becomes parallel with the floor. While lunging, simultaneously, bend forward at your hips, maintaining a flat back and drive your extended arms towards the floor in front of you (hands should reach somewhere below your knees).
