HOW: Place one leg on an elevated surface and bring the other leg back. Lower yourself down keeping most of your weight on the elevated leg. Comfortably, drop the back knee towards the floor. Then, push yourself back up primarily with the front elevated leg. Keep your torso mostly upright and engage your core.
FEEL: The elevated leg will feel the glute, quadriceps, and calf muscle primarily working. The back leg will feel a stretch in the front hip flexor and quadriceps.
COMPENSATION: As you squat down, keep an upright position while you squat down. Naturally, your body will want to slump down as you squat onto the elevated leg.
