On all fours, gently and simultaneously stretch a leg and the opposite arm out. Hold the position for 10 seconds, then change legs and arms.

Make sure that you keep your back nice and straight, and the bum cheek of the lifted leg well contracted.

If you feel comfortable, repeat the exercise with a weight in the hand of the stretched out arm.

> Do 5 sets of holding the leg and arm still for 10 seconds on each leg.
