Perform 8-10 repetitions on each arm.
The Set Up & Execution
• Get down on all fours.
• Balance on your hands and toes.
• Twisting from your hips, take one leg and place it under your opposite arm as you sit on your hip.
• Hold the position for a moment.
• Return to the start position and repeat on the opposite side.
• Do 8 to 10 repetitions on each side.
• To make it more challenging, stack your feet.
Maintain a quite head by keeping your eyes focused on one spot on the floor through the move.
Do not allow your shoulders to open left or right. Instead, keep them square—facing the ground—through the move.
So let’s make sure you get green checks on these key points:
• Put your arms under your shoulders and balance on your toes.
• As you rotate the hip down, keep your shoulders square, facing the ground.
• Sit with a purpose, do not get sloppy with the hip-sit.
• Maintain straight arms, directly under your shoulders through the move.
