Instructions: 
Stand with your feet about hip-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Lift your dominant leg in the air so that your foot is several inches off the ground.

Slowly lower your body as far as you can without rounding your back by bending your non-dominant leg.

When you can’t lower yourself any farther or your upper thigh is parallel to the floor, pause and then return to the starting position. Finish the set, then repeat with your dominant leg.
