Half-Squat (Knees and Feet Turned Out)

Half-squat (knees and feet turned out)

  1. Stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart. Turn each foot a little toward the outside so your toes aren't facing straight forward.
  2. Keep your back straight, and tighten your buttocks.
  3. Slowly bend your knees to lower your body down several inches toward the floor. Keep your heels on the floor. Try to keep your back straight at all times, and do not let your pelvis tilt forward or your knees extend beyond the tip of your toes.
  4. Repeat 8 to 12 times.
