You will step to the right and lunge your knee down to the floor. Starting back to the original stance, you will push back up and will repeat form to the other side.

Bridge

Start by raising the hips by pushing off of your heels. The higher and longer you hold in this stance, the more effective the results will be. The goal is to never let the buttock touch the ground and stay in this place for a minute. This will allow the body to feel te burn and get your legs perfectly shaped the way you want.
