Equipment Required: bucket, water
- Fill the bucket with water to an appropriate level (mark the bucket so you can replicate the same level next time).

- Keep your head up, looking straight ahead, with your knees slightly bent.
- Bend at the hips while keeping your back long and straight.
- Lower the bucket to the ground, then slowly raise it back up to the standing position.

Key points to remember
- Make sure you move in a nice fluid motion.
- To modify the difficulty of this exercise, vary the amount of water in the bucket. Other weighted articles can be used instead of the bucket.
