Stand to right of mat (lengthwise) with feet hip-width apart, elbows bent by sides, hands in front of chest.
Leap over mat to left side, pumping arms (right elbow forward, left elbow back) and landing on left leg, knee slightly bent, with bent right leg crossing slightly to the left behind you (in a speed skater's pose).
Quickly push off left leg and leap back over mat to right side, landing on right leg, to complete 1 rep.
Do 20 reps.
Trainer's tip: After each leap, reach opposite hand to outside of standing leg's ankle to really work the deep glute muscles.
