Then bring your left leg forward to meet your right leg. Next, step forward on your left leg as far as possible, until your left thigh is about parallel to the floor.

Then bring your right leg forward to meet your left leg.Continue stepping for 4 steps.

Next move to the Prisoner Squat Jumps. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, hands behind your head.
