Twist your sides and open your chest as much as possible. If the basic posture is difficult, put the soles of your feet on the ground and just raise your knees to workout!

Proper Form

1. Take a big step to the side with your right foot, and as you do, twist your torso to the right. 2.Bring your left arm across your body and touch your right elbow to your left thigh. 3. Step your right foot back to the center and extend your right arm straight out to the side. 4. Take a big step to the side with your left foot and twist your torso to the left. 5. Bring your right arm across your body and touch your left elbow to your right thigh. 6. Step your left foot back to the center and extend your left arm straight out to the side. 7. Continue alternating sides for the desired number of reps.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you step to the side and twist your torso. 2. Exhale as you bring your arm across your body and touch your elbow to your thigh.

Precautions
