“This move is cardio and sculpting at its best—sculpt the lower body and challenge cardio endurance,” says Andrea Rogers, former professional dancer, certified fitness instructor, and creator of Xtend Barre.
How to do it: Stand with your feet wider than hip-width apart, toes and knees pointed out. Plie (bend your knees) in this position. Draw one arm overhead and one leg into a front attitude position as you straighten the supporting leg. The leg continues to circle out and around and steps back into a wide squat position, bending both legs. That’s one rep. Do 16 reps on each leg.
