(Firms abs, hips, and thighs)
Stand with feet together, toes forward, and arms at sides. Inhale and raise arms overhead, reaching fingertips toward ceiling. Exhale, and bend forward from hips, bringing hands to floor (it’s OK to bend knees). Inhale, and as you exhale, step right leg back into a lunge (left knee bent about 90 degrees, knee over ankle; right leg extended and on ball of foot). Inhale and raise arms overhead; gaze forward. Hold, then return to standing and repeat, stepping left leg back.
Make It Easier:
Lower right knee to touch floor as you step back into a lunge, and rest hands on left thigh.
Make It Harder:
From end position, inhale and arch torso, arms, and head backward, gazing at fingertips.
