Warm-Up Step Touch with Cross-Back Leg and Opposition Arms
Move: To warm up your body, step side to side, tapping your leg diagonally behind you while reaching the same arm as leg to the front. Gradually make the movement bigger.
Repetitions: 30 on each side.
• Stand erect, shoulders back, chest up, and head lifted tall. Pull your abdominal muscles in.
• Stretch your arm forward and your leg back in opposition, feeling the mild stretch through the torso.
• Adding propulsion can increase the intensity of the move. Propulsion can be added by simply leaping out of the tap, landing softly into the next step.
