    Donna Wilkinson: This next section is going to be challenging, its really going to work your hips and your core. Key points on this, is trying to keep your body as flat as possible. We dont want your butt going up in the air, and its going to be a very simple exercise. You are going to start with one foot, let your arms, your body staying nice and tight.

    Now, it won't stay exactly flat the whole time. We want to do the best that we can to keeping it that way. We are just going to basically alternate our feet position, so with this foot is up, we are going to alternate it back, bring the other one up. We are going to do this for ten. Make sure you keep that back nice and tight. Its called groiners, you really feel that. Good. So, just make sure that you try to keep your body as flat as possible, so you are not going way up high and you are really feeling that stretch in the groin and in this inner thigh area. Now, we conclude our floor section.
