Stand tall with the feet parallel and hip width apart. Take a large step forward so that the front shin is vertical to the floor. Pause and lower the body steadily while keeping the torso upright and the shin vertical. As the back knee almost touches the ground push the heel of the front leg into the ground and spring back to standing.

Make sure that whilst you are in the bent knee position that the front knee is in alignment with the toes. Head should be upright and facing forwards.

To start with compete this exercise on a stable surface without weights. To increase the difficulty of this exercise you can hold on to light hand weights or a barbell as demonstrated in the video.
