Start in a standing position with the feet about hip-width apart, the back tall and straight, and the knees slightly bent. Push the hips backwards and start to lift the left foot off the ground. Keep the back straight while straightening the leg directly behind the body. Continue leaning forward to a comfortable distance, and then stand up by squeezing the right glute and tilting the right hip down towards the floor while swinging the left leg down towards the floor. Complete the desired number of repetitions on the left leg before switching to the right. Hands can be held out in any fashion for balance.
