This is one rep. I do 10 – 15 reps on each side. You have to only do as many reps as your body allows you to do in a proper form. If you are loosing the form, reduce the reps.

Make sure you always warm up your full body and your joints before doing any exercise.


For Beginners:

In order to do this exercise you can bend your leg on the starting position, in the second part of the exercise take the opposite hand off the ground, this will make the movement easier to perform.

Before you can try this exercise, you should be able to do a full one leg squat. If you are unable to do a full one leg squat, you can practice with a chair by squatting only half way down.
