Extended Standing Straddle

What it tones: Abs and thighs

How to do it:

  • From Side Fierce, rotate your torso back to the center, and stand up. Take a step open to the right so your feet are parallel and about three to four feet apart.
  • Inhale to extend your arms straight above you. With strong legs, exhale as you hinge at your hips, holding your torso parallel to the floor. Focus on drawing your belly in, and shift weight forward toward your toes. If this causes too much strain on your lower back, bring your hands to your hips or thighs for support.
  • Stay in Extended Standing Straddle for five breaths.
