Attitude to Side Sweep

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Inner Thighs and Quads


Step 1:  The attitude pose is derived from ballet. You can have your hands on your hips or out to the side for balance. Lift one leg and bring it front, bending it so the knee drops out to the outside and the foot crosses in front of the other leg. Aim for a 90-degree bend.


Step 2: Swing the leg open to the outside. Point the foot for a long, lean extension, encouraging the knee to straighten as well. Bring the leg back into the starting position and begin again. You can lightly hold onto a countertop or the wall for balance.
