Starting position: Stand tall with your feet hip-width apart and your weight evenly distributed on both feet. Brace your abdominal muscles and place your arms at your sides. Place your left foot, heel to toe, directly in front of your right foot, and push your inner thighs together. To help you balance, lift your arms out to the sides at shoulder level. Hold. Rep with your right foot in front, then return to the starting position. This brings us to the end of one rep. Techniques and suggestions: Choose an area directly ahead of you to help with balance, tighten your abdominal muscles, buttocks, and inner thighs. Maintain a downward and backward posture with your shoulders.
