Shrimp Squat Instructions
1. Stand up straight with your feet hip-width apart, bend your left knee to the back and grab your left foot with your right hand.
2. Start bending your right knee and slowly lower your hips back.
3. Push through the right heel to return to the starting position.
4. Switch legs and repeat.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Keep your back straight, chest open, shoulders back and tighten your core. Breathe in as you lower your hips back slowly and keep your balance by lifting your left arm to the front. Go only as low as you can without losing form and breathe out as you push through the heel to get back up.
