To begin this exercise place the ball of your rear foot on a step with the other leg in front as demonstrated. Lower yourself into a deep lunge position by bending your back knee. To avoid straining your hip, only drop down as far as comfortable. Return to the start position, by pushing up through the heel of your front foot. Your physio will advise whether you should perform this exercise with any weights.
