Forward lunge walk, side arabesque

Keep the head up, the chest lifted, and the abdominal muscles tight throughout the series. Stand erect. Take a big step forward with one foot, landing in a lunge position. Lower yourself in a controlled fashion to a full lunge, with the back knee just brushing the floor.
(When the back knee just brushes the floor, the front knee should be vertical over the foot. If the front knee is ahead of that foot, take a bigger step.) Press your front heel into the floor, rising up with the glutes and hamstrings of the front leg. As you are rising, point your rear leg behind you, like an arabesque. Keeping it fairly straight, loop it from rear to front, then step straight ahead into the next lunge.
