Starting Position

  • your feet are a bit wider apart than shoulder width
  • the feet are rotated outwards 20 to 30 degrees
  • important: knees and tiptoes point into the same direction
  • hold your arms horizontally in front of your body
  • your upper body is bent forwards a tiny bit

Correct Execution

  • brace your body and hold your back straight
  • tilt your knees slowly until the thighs are parallel to the ground (your bottom moves backwards)
  • if possible, your knees stay behind your tiptoes
  • bring your body back into the starting position by putting pressure on the heels
  • raise the number of repetitions to feel the desired effect in your legs

tip for the workout

  • put on a filled backpack to make this leg exercise more difficult
