Use the "down", "stay", or "sit" command while you are performing this exercise.

  • Find a bench and sit on the edge of it.
  • Place your hands directly by your side.
  • Dip your body down from the bench so that your bottom is lower than the bench.
  • It's very important to keep your bottom close to the bench, don't let it wander too far forward.
  • To make this exercise more difficult, straighten your legs.
  • Do 5 to 15 of these and then continue on your walk.
