It's a great cardio workout, you can do it for 30 seconds, you can try to do it for a whole minute. It's that cardio workout so that you're burning calories, and it's just fun, okay. So we're going to break it down nice and slow first, because the steps can be a little complicated, but do not quit on me. Right? So, take your right foot, kick it out. Now, cross over, and then rock, step. That's all that it is. And you take the same foot, left foot, kick, cross, rock, step. Yes, super simple. Let's do it four times really slow. So that you get those feet, cross over, kick, cross over, rock, step. Kick, cross, rock, step. Kick, cross over, rock, step. Same foot kick, cross, rock, step. OK?
