“This exercise works the entire body. I love this one because it challenges my balance and is effective in producing accelerated results,” says Lisa Hubbard, star of the Element: Accelerated Pilates DVD.
How to do it: Step your right foot on top of the band and stand with your heels and inner thighs pressed together, toes pointed out, hands on your hips. Reach your right leg forward and circle it around to the back, maintaining external rotation of the legs. Reverse the direction to complete one rep. Do 2 sets of 10 repetitions on each leg.
