Move Targets: Hamstrings and core
Step 1: Stand tall with your core pulled in and your shoulders back. Your knees should be slightly bent. Arms can be in a running position to help you keep balance and momentum.
Step 2: Keep this posture and bend at your knee until your heel reaches your butt. Try not to lean forward; instead keep your chest up and open and your abs locked. Your body should be moving straight up and down as your switch from leg to leg. Modification: Kick your heels back as far as you can. The goal is not to let your knees come forward.
