Today and until New Years, we are going to focus on your shoulders, your arms and probably your waist. And just five moves for you to do until New Years and you will be all set. Sarah: Seating a lot of times so I like that, just five moves, all right cool. Katrina: Okay.

Twist towards the leg step out way, go up. Twist toward leg the step out way. Keep going, okay. The twisting is getting your waist, all those oblique muscles and tightening up the whole waist area, awesome all right. So, grab the physio ball, do you remember ball tuck?

Elbows high, wrist are not bent, bring your elbows up, okay. You are going to switch and then press above your head, bring them down then reverse that move, okay upright row, shoulder press.

God and then do you feel that in your rear belt? Your upper back muscles? Sarah: (Inaudible) Katrina: [Laughs] that is good. All right you can drop them down, okay. Last thing that we are going to do, you will seat on the edge of the ball, okay real forward a little bit so you are on the edge. Thanks, your arms are forward. You are going to twist up the waist, touch the floor, and come up. This one really works for the sides of the waist and a front for your dress. Here we go, arms forward, So Sarah’s are going on the edge the ball, I wish she can go back when it touch the floor, okay good.
