3. Squat to the right, going as low as it feels comfortable.
4. Return to the starting position and repeat on the left side.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Tighten your core, keep your back straight at all times, and maintain your knees in line with your toes. Breathe in as you squat, and keep both heels on the floor. Exhale as you push through the heels to return to the starting position.
