Repetitions: 20 on each side
Targets: glutes, hips, and obliques
Stand tall with your feet in first position and place your right hand on the back of the chair. Keeping your chest lifted, extend your left leg behind your hip into an arabesque position, foot pointed, and reach your left arm in front of your shoulder, palm facing down.
Keeping your left leg raised, bend your left knee out to the side into an attitude position (your knee should be higher than your foot), and reach your left arm above your head in third position (elbow slightly bent, arm in a half circle shape by your ear, palm down). Extend your raised leg back out into arabesque. That's one rep. Repeat 20 times with the left leg, 20 times with the right.
