Side lunge walk, cross-kick

Keep the head up, the chest lifted, and the abdominal muscles tight throughout the series. Stand erect. Can-can kick across your body with one leg (reach the foot toward the opposite hand). As the foot comes out of the kick, take a big step to the side with it, landing in a side lunge position.
Lower yourself in a controlled fashion to a full lunge, with the thigh of the bent leg about parallel to the floor. Press that heel into the floor, rising up with the glutes and hamstrings of the bent leg. As you are rising, kick your straight leg in front and across your body in a can-can kick, then step it out to the side into the next lunge.
