How to do:

  • Begin by standing a few feet in front of a step and reach your left foot back so toes are on the bench and heels lifted.
  • Bend the right knee, lowering your body toward the floor until both knees are bent at a 90-degree angle. If your right knee extends in front of your ankle when you lower, move your right foot farther forward.
  • Squeeze the glute as you press yourself back to start, keeping the weight in your right leg. Continue moving down and up for desired number of reps and switch sides.
