This move fuses a little Pilates, yoga, and resistance training to help you develop core strength, improve flexibility, and sculpt your thighs, back, and arms.
How to do it: Grab a pair of dumbbells and stand with your feet wider than hip-width apart, knees and toes turned out about 45 degrees. Bend your knees and lower your hips straight down, keeping your back straight and abs tight. Squeeze your elbows into your sides and curl your arms halfway up (your arms and body should resemble a letter 'W') [left photo]. Inhale and hold for 1 count.
As you exhale, shift your weight into your left leg and straighten your right leg (foot stays pressed into the floor), pressing your left elbow on top of your left thigh as you extend your right arm straight outside of your ear and look up to your hand [bottom right photo]. Inhale and return to the starting position [left photo]. Exhale and repeat to the other side [top right photo]. That's one rep. Do 20 reps total, alternating sides each time.
Blast fat, build strength, and focus your mind in one fell swoop!
