✔︎ Improves posture ✔︎ Increases hip swing ✔︎ Strengthens inner/outer abdominals, lower back, upper back and deltoid (shoulder) ✔︎ Increases flexibility in pelvis and hips
During this entire exercise, maintain your posture and keep your arms at a 90-degree angle in front of you with your elbows up the entire time. You can also keep your hands crossed. Keep tension in your entire body the whole time.
While doing this exercise, you should feel your abdominals, lower back, upper back and deltoid muscles.
Stand with your both legs straight and open in position; keep a space between your feet while slightly turning out your feet. Your full weight (center of gravity) is between your legs.
Isolate your upper body from your hips and push your hips out as much as you can. Alternate ONLY your hips to the left and right sides.
Control yourself in the mirror and take a look at the right/wrong pictures below. Compare yourself with the pictures. Does it look about the same?
Repeat the full exercise multiple times.
Now, stand on your full toe area and repeat the entire exercise.
Once you feel comfortable, put on your heels and repeat the exercise. Make sure always to work your way up from a lower to higher heel.
