How to progress the exercise
The back leg can be raised on a bench or ball for a more challenging progression. A hop can also be added to add a more dynamic force element to the movement. A balance disc or BOSU can be added to stand on for a balance challenge.
It is important to make sure that your body weight is equally distributed between both legs, and that the back hip flexor gets the stretch in order to keep its length. Along with this, avoid having the front knee too far forward over the toes.
