Favorite Move: Parallel with your legs glued together (feel like it makes you really engage your core—for balance, your legs and your inner thighs. It also creeps up on you, which provides a nice challenge).
Favorite Cue: “Pull up through your core, chest and all the way through the top of your head”.
