The Set Up & Execution
• Begin in a wide squat position, legs at or below parallel with arms genie-crossed.
• Toes slightly flared with the weight in the heels.
• Engage your core as you take a breath.
• Take 4 small steps forward.
• Then take 4 small steps back.
• Chest up and head neutral.
• Maintain an upright torso position the entire walk.
At the bottom of the squat, your lumbar spine has maintained its curve. This is critical. Do not round the back at any point. You know you are below parallel at the bottom of the squat, when the crease of your hip is below the top of the knee.
Never, ever curve your spine or tuck your butt. If you cannot maintain a straight back, do not drop down as low.
So let’s make sure you get green checks on these key points:
• Weight in heels the entire time.
• Ideally, hips remain below parallel through the entire movement
• Maintain an upright and engaged torso. A proud chest.
Your goal is 20 total steps with good, clean form.
