*you can start out on your knees and work up to being on your toes

• You are balancing your weight on the palms of your hands and the balls of your feet

• Hold this position for as long as you can...start with a goal of 30sec and work up to a minute plus

Important: Get your butt out of the air! And don’t let your body sag! Keep your back straight, your spine in line and just hold the position.
