Lateral Shuffle – Exercise of the Week

Lateral Shuffle – Exercise of the Week

The Lateral Shuffle is an exercise that focuses on stretching the lower body. This exercise is a dynamic stretching exercise you can use before each of your workouts. Dynamic stretching is used to increase the range of movement, blood and oxygen flow to soft tissues prior to exertion and helps reduce the chances of injury.

  • Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart and turned out to roughly 45 degrees.
  • From that position, step out with your left foot, keeping your knees bent in the squat position.
  • Take a step with your right foot to return to start and continuing skipping sideways for 15-20m before returning to the start but facing in the same direction.
