A squat is one of the most functional exercises you could ever participate in AND if done properly can translate into a proper lunge as well, which directly translates to your gait.

2 point opposing extensions and pull ins. This exercise exposes a lot of weaknesses in a person and can immediately bring awareness to these areas. Core being number one as well as many extensors of the body. Use the pull in as a way to maintain controlled balance through movement. This is usually easier for someone to start than a static hold and has minimal risk of injury. Remember: the slower the better.

However, it is important that you use a variety of positions and tempos as the chest is typically overworked on most individuals.
