Pivot and Reach

Starting Position Stand tall with your back straight, abs engaged, shoulders relaxed, legs spaced wider than your hips, feet turned outward and knees bent slightly. Place your hands on your hips.

Action Keeping both feet on the floor at all times, breathe deeply and pivot on the ball of your left foot (heel off the floor) and turn your body toward the right while reaching your left arm overhead next to your ear. Return to the starting position, facing front, hands on hips. Switch sides by pivoting on the ball of your right foot, turning your body toward the left and reaching your right arm overhead. Return to center. Switch sides and repeat.

Special Instructions Keep your abdominals engaged throughout this exercise. To increase intensity, move more quickly and/or squat more deeply when returning to the start position each time.
