Instructions: 
START: Hold a broomstick above your head with your hands about twice shoulder-width apart. Your arms should be completely straight. Brace your core and hold it that way. Your back should be naturally arched. Set your feet about shoulder-width apart, with your toes pointed forward.

MOVEMENT: Lower your body as far as you can by pushing your hips back and bending your knees. Keep your weight in your heels, not on your toes, for the entire movement. Your chest should stay lifted. Try to keep that stick over your shoulder. Your arms should stay straight and above your shoulders. The tops of your thighs are parallel to the floor or lower. Do not let your lower back bend.
