Swing your legs out in front of you and shake them out.
A: Bring your right foot to the inside of your left leg. Place your right hand on the mat or floor beside your right hip for support.
B: With your left arm, reach up and over your head toward the right side of your body and then back down to shoulder height. Make sure you’re sitting up straight. Repeat this 5 times, inhaling as you reach up and exhaling as you bring your arm back down. We will be doing this pose with weights during the 4-Week Workout, so I want to make sure you get your form down now. After you have done this 5 times, switch sides. Your left foot should come to the inside of your right leg. Bring your left hand beside your left hip for support, while your right hand comes up and over toward your left, and then back down to shoulder height. Do this 5 times slowly. Sitting up straight will help you focus on your core. If you can’t sit up straight, you can modify the pose by not reaching up and over so far. Or you can sit up on a folded blanket, which helps to keep you from slouching.
Tip: Try to get your foot to the inside of your thigh. If you have trouble, just bring your foot to your knee (or to your calf) to modify the pose.
