2) Start position: Lift one foot off ground and extend leg forward. Extend arms forward at hip level. If strong enough hold a dumbbell at chest level.
3) Lower body by flexing at the hips and knees. Upper body can flex forward at the hips slightly (~5°) during movement. Be sure to “sit back” so that knees stay over the feet.
4) Once thigh is slightly above parallel (as shown) return to start position.

Dip

1. Step up on foot platform (if available) and position hands on dip bars.
2. Start position: Remove feet from platforms and suspend the body with slightly bent elbows. Lean forward slightly so that your elbows are slightly past the plane of your back and knees slightly bent.
