Description

Set up in a 1/2 Kneeling position, back knee resting on the floor, directly under the hip and shoulder. The shin of your from leg should be close to vertical, your body forming 90 degree angles at the knees and hips. Keep your torso upright, and maintain a neutral back throughout. Lift your knee off the floor, weight on the ball of your foot. Drive through the front leg, exhaling as you extend the knees and hips. Descend with control. Repeat for repetitions and then switch sides. Think about the movement as ‘up and doing’ rather then forward and backward, and be sure you aren’t leaning forward or arching back.
