  1. Take a step to the right from an upright position, keeping your feet (and the rest of your body) pointing forward.
  2. Lower yourselves with your upper body upright and your weight on your right foot. Lower as far as possible and keep your left leg stretched and your feet flat on the floor
  3. Repeat the same movement with our left leg.
  4. Repeat these movements a number of times.

Usually, the arms are left beside the body or are stretched above the head.
Some volleyball players perform this exercise with their arms stretched forward as if they want to play a ball underhand.
