Place your right heel about 2 feet in front of your left foot so that when you bend your knees, your right knee is able to achieve a 90 degree bend without your kneecap moving past the ankle. Keep your weight evenly distributed between both feet with your back heel lifted.
Maintain neutral spinal alignment with your abs engaged and bend your knees until your front leg reaches a 90 degree bend. Press up until your legs are straight.
