Con un pie delante del otro

Echa un vistazo a esta referencia sobre "split stance": https://www.muscleandperformance.com/training-performance/ul...
Se refiere sencillamente a colocarse con un pie adelantado con respecto al otro.
En este contexto, creo que traduciría "Adopt a split stance position by placing your opposite leg in front" por "Adelanta el pie contrario" o similar.
¡Espero que te sirva de ayuda!

agree  JohnMcDove: Sí, o tal vez explicitándolo, aunque sea un poco pleonástico: "Adopta una postura con los pies separados, adelantando el pie contrario..." O algo por el estilo. Aunque ya sabemos que "la forma de cruzar el río es cruzando el río, claro"... ;-)

  -> Jaja, ¡gracias! Con la explicación queda clarísimo, aunque para una vez que el español puede ser más breve y sintético que el inglés, me parecía una pena no aprovecharlo.
