Move Targets: Glutes and Thighs
Step 1: The sweeping skater is a bigger version of your traditional skater jump. From standing, cross one leg in front of you, toe pointing forward and drop down into a lunge. Reach your opposite hand all the way down to the floor. Let the chest drop, but don't round the back.
Step 2: Jump up, swinging your arms overhead. You'll make a big "swoop" or circle with your arms. Get both feet off the floor at the same time as you switch to the other side.
Step 3: Your feet will switch at some point in the air, leaping from side to side. Cross the opposite leg in front of your body, lunge and touch the floor. Modification: Skip the jump and step from side to side.
