Go ahead and point it towards your shoulder,bring it out and up, okayé So this works the oblique. It also works your glute you'reinner and your outer thigh, so it's like a
triple whammy move, or however many thingsI said right there. It is a total body workout, and it is amazing. I want you to keep flexingthat foot, bring it all the way out to the side. Lift, good job. Reach and up. Now tryto keep your hips square to the ceiling, or if you outside like me, square to the sky.And keep going. You don't wanna be hula dancing around with those hips.
