How they’re different — emphasize lateral mobility, the butt, and core strength; require greater single-leg power and explosion.

(1) Stand tall with two light dumbbells. Take a large step to the left and squat down laterally until your left thigh is parallel with the floor. Make sure to sit back over the back half of your butt and resist any pull to hunch forward.

(2) Touch the dumbbells to the ground, press through your butt, and return back up to starting position. Repeat for the right side and continue to alternate.
