Move Targets: Core, Shoulders and Glutes


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Begin by standing with your feet under the shoulders and the weight in both hands, lifted to your chest and elbows pointing outward. Lift one leg out to the side, just a couple inches from the ground.

Step 2: Lift the knee and cross it over the body as you twist the upper body in the other direction, like you're wringing out the core. Keep the elbows lifted. Straighten the leg to the side again without touching the floor, if you can balance! Then repeat the lift and twist.
