Sissy Squat

  • HOW: Start in a standing position with your feet about shoulder width apart. Push your toes into the ground and raise your heels. From here, drive your knees as far forward as you can. As your knees and hips come forward, your chest and back will go backwards, maintaining your balance. Try to get as low as you can before your knees hit the ground and push yourself back up. You may want to start on a wall or holding a stick due to the difficulty. 
  • FEEL: You should feel the muscles in your legs working. You should also feel a stretch in your ankle. 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep you back straight and don’t bring it forward as you squat down.
