This is a time-efficient exercise that quickly strengthens and sculpts the legs and glutes. You are training the legs independently, where the front leg works the glutes and hamstrings, while the back leg sculpts the quadriceps. Core strength and balance skills are also enhanced.
Start out practicing this exercise on flat ground, and then you can add a curb or step to place your back toes on for more challenge.
Works: Glutes, Hamstrings, Quadriceps, Balance
Props: A curb, root, berm or step with a three to 8 inch rise
