  • This is a rapid movement of the feet 5 to 10 centimeters off the ground.
  • Foot contact should be on the mid foot not the toes or heels. This will activate the muscles around the ankles.
  • Elbows are at 90º and leading with the elbows, swing arms back and forth, hands and fingers extended.
  • The faster the arm move the faster the feet move! It is an amazing trick! Repeat for the minute.


2. Reverse Lunges
