Forward lunge walk, cross kick
- Hits: 3899
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 forward with it, 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, kick your back leg in front and across your body in a can-can kick, then step straight ahead into the next lunge.
