(works legs, butt, back) Stand with feet just beyond shoulder-width apart and parallel. Bend knees about 45 degrees and lower hips into a half squat, letting hips sink back behind heels. Lift arms out to sides at shoulder level and slightly behind you, elbows bent and palms turned up (as shown). Lengthen torso by lifting chest and pulling shoulder blades down and back. You should feel a strong stretch across chest. Hold for several seconds, then straighten legs and lower arms to sides. Repeat for one minute.
