Curtsey Step Down To Single Leg Balance

HOW: Place a step on the ground. While standing on the step, step down with one leg crossing behind the leg on the step in a diagonal motion. Reach in that diagonal plane for as far as you can reach while maintaining the other leg on the step. Take about 3 seconds to step down in a controlled manner, then explode back up balancing on the one leg that was stationed on the step. Hold that position for as long as prescribed.    FEEL: You should feel your glute and hip muscles working on the leg that stays on the step.  COMPENSATION: Don’t let your leg cave in as the other leg steps behind it, keep it sturdy and strong.
