Breathing; always begin your workout with these simple exercises. Stand with your legs apart, feet parallel, feet underneath your shoulders, bend your knees slightly, suck your stomach in, your bum underneath yourself. Relax your body, relax your shoulders, breath in by pulling your arms up towards you, and breathe in. And count five, six, seven, breathe in and breathe out. Again breathe in from your nose, and out. And again, and breathe out. And go up on your toes, and bend down your knees further and breathe in on your toes, and down. Continue, two more, and breathe out, up again. Okay, you want to breathe in, all the way up, release your back and roll down, put your hands on your knees and contract, release, contract, release, back to flat by going in. Again breathe in, imagine somebody's pushing your stomach up and the only back is a flat back here; don't arch your back. Breathe in, two more, come on. And breathe out, and contract, release only back to flat back here. Last set; release and hands on your knees, and contract, release, contract, release. Last set; rolling up, new step here.
