and grasp bar to sides. Place one foot slightly forward and forefoot
of other leg further back. Disengage bar by rotating bar back.

legs until knee of rear leg is almost in contact with floor.
Return to original straddled position by extending hips and knees
of both legs. Repeat. Continue with opposite leg.
