How To Do:

  • Stand with your legs wider than shoulder-width apart, toes turned out just a little bit, tailbone tucked. With a very light weight in your hands (5 pounds at most—or you can even hold a pillow—just to keep anchored so you don’t feel the move in your lower back) extend arms up straight above your head as far as you can.
  • “It should really feel like a stretch,” says Stokes. Then, bend from the hips and reach your body as far as you can to the right, hips and shoulders square forward.
  • At the last second when you can’t reach any more, rotate toward the floor.
  • Twist your body back to face front, exhale and pull back up to center.

  • Twist your torso to the right till your face and your hands are facing the opposite direction.
  • Twist towards the left side.
  • Make sure your arms punch in the air.
