Process

Step 1: Engage the core. Initiate movement from the hips. Attach the Link™ to itself and both handles. Pull the Link™ up to the middle of the chest.

Step 2: Drop the hips as if you are going to sit in a chair, slowly lower the body until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Hold for 1 count.

Step 3: Push through the heels. Return to starting position in a controlled manner.

Tips: Put more emphasis on the groin region with respect to work and mobility; focus on sitting as deep as possible and stretching that groin to increase mobility with each rep. Core activation is key. Keep the shoulders back and down and maintain a "big chest”. Body weight should stay on the heels and outside of the foot.

Link™ to Exterior: Handles in hands. Held at chest

Stance: Hip width +2. Toes slightly pointing out
