Perform cardio and active stretching warm-up for 3-5 minutes. Stand tall with the feet hip-width apart. Roll the shoulders back and press downward. Suck in the tummy in an effort to make the navel touch the spine.

Movement

Front Leg Swings Movement

1. Shift the body weight to balance on the left leg. The movement of this exercise is similar to riding a skateboard. Bring the right knee up until the thigh is nearly parallel to the floor. At a medium speed, straighten and swing the right leg behind you while allowing the right foot to lightly brush the floor. Swing the right leg back to the front while bending the knee. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions. Perform this exercise on the opposite side.
