Step 3: Bend your left leg and lower down into a squat as far as you can, keeping the weight in your heel and your back straight. Pause for a few seconds at the bottom of your move, then return to standing. Alternate legs for 60 seconds. It helps to pick a focal point and engage your core for proper balance.
