Step 6—Ballet Cross Reach

This stretch and balance move feels amazing. Start with elbows hooked standing about 12 to 18 inches apart, side by side. Step your outside foot behind and grab hands over head. Pull your arms upward and press hips out to the side. This opens the IT band, obliques and lats, which become tight after most cardio. Hold for 10 to 30 seconds and repeat on the other side. This is a great exercise after your walk or jog with a friend.

Enjoy your time with friends and tone your body too.
