Move Targets: Glutes and Quadriceps
Step 1: Standing tall, lift one leg by bending the knee and bringing it up to hip height. Keep your standing leg soft (not locked out). Elbows are tightly braced against your sides with fists in each hand.
Step 2: Flex the foot of the raised leg and kick it straight out in front of you. You might need to lean back slightly to get a full extension with good balance. Bend the knee again before setting the foot on the floor.
