Start by practicing the exercise in front of a set of stairs. Use the first step as a support behind you.

Reach back and put your first hand on the step. Then sweep the free hand over and place it down on the step so you can remove the original hand (you're now in your new "tripod").

Next, take your new free hand and sweep it over towards your planted hand, which is still on the step behind you. Once you reach the end point of that sweep, reverse direction and sweep it out to the front.

Use the momentum of that sweeping hand to propel you forward into a low squat.

Once you are a hero at that exercise with the step, you can start working on the same movement with your hands on the floor.
