Basic Step-Touch (Lateral) Exercise

Basic Step-Touch (Lateral)

Starting Position Stand tall with your back straight, abs engaged, shoulders relaxed and hands on your hips. You can place a resistance band, measuring tape, jump rope or other long object on the floor next to you as a guide (optional).

Action Breathe deeply as you step-touch side to side while keeping your hands on your hips.

Special Instructions If using a guide on the floor, step across it each time and monitor your footwork to avoid tripping. Be sure to move laterally without twisting or rotating your body. Keep your shoulders and hips square to the front at all times. The wider you step to the side and the faster you move, the more intense this exercise will become.
