Step-Back Lunge with Cross Chop
Move: Reach your arms diagonally across your body to the left as you step back with your right leg and dip into a lunge. Pull your arms across your body to the right hip as you slide your right leg back to standing.
Repetitions: 12 on each side.
• Step back far enough into the lunge so that the front knee is directly over the front ankle.
• When your arms reach diagonally above your shoulder, hold your core muscles tight to keep the lower back from arching.
• The move can be done with a towel or weights.
• For a challenge lift your knee toward your chest, balancing on one foot instead of coming just to standing.
