(works obliques, 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. Raise right arm out to side and up at an angle, palm facing front, and turn head to look up at right hand. Twist torso to right as you bring left hand to meet right. Keeping right arm stationary, imagine slowly drawing back the string of a bow as you turn torso toward front again, pulling left hand across body toward left shoulder and leaning to left (as shown). Contract abs strongly. Arms form a line from right fingers to left elbow. Reach left hand up to right again and repeat for one minute, then switch sides.
