Lateral Reach

  • HOW: Start by standing tall with both feet together. Lift one leg slightly off of the ground and begin to squat down with the other leg bending at the knee. Keeping your upper body mostly straight up, reach with that foot in the air directly to that side. Bend your knee as much as you can while maintaining balance. Bring the foot back to the starting position and repeat. 
  • FEEL: You should feel the muscles in your leg working.
  • COMPENSATION: Don’t lean too much to the opposite side of the leg reaching out, stay upright.
