    Raise your arms in front of you or to the side for balance. Push your hips back and lower your torso toward the floor while keeping your back straight. At the same time, raise your right leg behind you, keeping it straight. When your torso and leg are parallel to the floor, reverse the movement to return to start.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Avoid leaning too far forward or kicking too low. Aim to form a T with your body.
  • Avoid looking down at the floor. Instead, look forward throughout the move.
