Process

Step 1: Squeeze the down-leg glute and step to the side by pushing off down-leg (don't just reach with stepping leg).

Step 2: Once stance is at full width, sit the hips down towards the active leg until the active-leg thigh is parallel to the ground.

Step 3: Push off through the center of the active-foot explosively and return to starting position.

Tips: The initial movement is explosive. The lowering of the body is done slowly as to stretch the groin and work the whole leg. EXPLODE back to starting position. Focus on keeping the upper body upright. Don’t rush the movement. Keep the active knee over the ankle (like sitting in a chair).
