MOVE 1: SIDE-TO-SIDE WARM UP
WARMS up your waistline!

MOVE 2: HANDS UP WARM UP LUNGES
TONES your glutes and hamstrings. Also warms up your lower body!

MOVE 3: LEG TONER WITH BICEPS CURLS
WORKS your thighs, booty and biceps.
START with the mini band wrapped around your wrists and sit back into a chair pose. Lift your heels slightly off the ground. Make sure to create resistance with the band by pulling your hands apart.
