This exercise is designed to work both your quads and your glutes. It is great to do before any kind of sport involving running, or just at the gym.
Start this exercise with your feet in a split stance and your toes pointed forward. Make sure to keep your back straight.
Bend your knees until they are both approximately 90 degrees. Keep most of your weight on your front heel without letting your knee go too far past your toes. Also, keep your kneecap in line with your 2nd toe at all times during this exercise.
Push back up to the starting position to complete one rep.
Suggested reps: 3-5 both legs. – Positioning your feet in different ways can allow you to focus more on working the quads or the glute muscles.
