Start State with Squat for 30 seconds/person. Continue with hand press for 40 seconds. Repeat this for two more sets. Total 3 sets. 

Feel free to change "hand press" from another Play exercise. 

Squats
Position
Doer and Tool grab each other’s wrist with their arms crossed.
Doer stands with her feet slightly wider than shoulder width and looks slightly up.
Tool steps forward with one foot between Doer’s feet.
Doer and Tool straighten their arms and lean back.

The exercise
Doer comes down into a squat and then pushes herself up.
Repeat the exercise.

Think about
Both should lean back with straight, relaxed arms.
Doer aims to maintain control on the way down and use more force coming up.

Useful points
As both lean back with straight arms, the strain on Doer’s knees is reduced.

Hand press
Position
Both grab each other’s hands, interlacing their fingers.

The exercise
Attempt to move each other using the legs and hands.

Useful points
Keep the arms active throughout the exercise.
