  3. Take a big step to the right with your right foot, bending the right knee and keeping the left leg straight. Return to the starting position.
  4. Take a big step back with your right foot. Lower until left leg is bent 90° and right knee is almost touching the floor. Return to starting position.
  5. Repeat with the left foot, stepping to the front, then to the left side, then back. That’s one set. Do 15 sets.
