The exercise
Doer lowers herself into a squat and then pushes up again while pulling her arms up.

Think about

Doer attempts to complete the exercise in one continuous movement.

Useful points
The exercise is easier to do the more Tool is able to tense his body.
Doer might have a tendency to fall forwards with her back.
Remind her that that the hips should be pushed straight down. This helps Doer keep a straight back.
