Extended Wide Squat

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Hips, quads, hamstrings and glutes


Step 1: Stand with your feet slightly wider than your hips. Bend your knees, and lower your hips down toward the ground. Bring your palms together at your heart center, and firmly press your elbows against the inside of your knees. This will help to open your hips even further. 


Step 2: After five breaths, release the hands to the floor and walk them away from your feet, as far as comfortable, to increase the stretch in the hips and lower back. Hold for another five breaths.
