1. Hold dumb­bells in each hand or put on a weighted pack (start with 30 pounds to­tal). Stand 3 feet from a knee-high bench (fac­ing away from it) and ex­tend one leg be­hind you. The top of that foot should rest on the bench.

2. Lower into a squat for a count of four un­til your front thigh is par­al­lel to the floor (make sure your knee does not go past your toes).

3. Drive up through your heel for a count of two to re­turn to the start­ing po­si­tion.
