Correct Execution

  • make a big step to the side and bend the knee joint to 90 degrees
  • push your bottom back a bit
  • the feet have to be parallel
  • the knee should not protrude the tiptoes in the squat, this preserves the joints
  • the other foot remains unmoved, the other leg is stretched out automatically
  • bring pressure on the heel of the bent leg and push yourself back up again
  • pull back the bent leg
  • repeat the exercise several times, also work out the other leg

tip for the workout
