Move Targets: Abdominals, gluteus and hamstrings


Step-By-Step:

Step 1: Get onto your hands and knees, with your shoulders over your elbow and wrist, and with your hips over your knees. Make sure your knees make 90 degree angles on both sides.

Step 2: Keep your head, neck and shoulders in alignment — a straight line from the back of your head to your tailbone, with your eyes cast down.

Step 3: Draw your abs in and extend your right arm forward and left leg backward. Hold for three seconds and bring arm and leg back to mat.

Step 4: Repeat on other side.

Step 5: Make sure to keep your abs drawn in and tailbone tucked. Move slowly!


Modification (Beginner): If your balance is off, you can extend the leg but keep the toe in contact with the ground, or do one arm at a time followed by one leg at a time.
