This exercise tests your balance and activates muscles throughout your body without you even noticing. It’s also great for toning your legs and glutes.
1. With feet hip-width apart, slowly lower into a half-squat, keeping knees over toes.
2. Raise right knee to hip level, then extend right leg to the side, straightening left leg as you push out through your right heel.
3. Pull right knee in, and return to starting position.
4. Do 4 reps; switch sides, and repeat. Do 2 sets.
Trainer tip: To help with balance and make the move even more effective, squeeze your butt as you lift your leg.
