Squat to Stand

  • Beginner
  • Body weight
  • Hamstrings · Quadriceps · Lower Back

Setup instructions

1) Start with your feet shoulder width apart, chest up, back flat, core tight with a slight bend in the knees. Point your feet out.

2) Lower yourself into a deep squat. Instead of pushing your tailbone back, aim to get it aligned with the heels of your feet. This will cause your knees to point up and out.

3) Grab your feet - extend the arms so your forearms are resting inside your knees.

Perform instructions

1) Slowly extend your legs but still keep a slight bend in the knees - this will push the tailbone back.

2) Pause for a second and lower yourself to the starting position.

3) Repeat.
