Hey. I'm Layla, and I'm going to show you how to do a crescent kick over a chair. For this exercise, you're going to need a chair. You don't really need a chair, it's just good for you to have one there so you can get your leg up as high as you can. If you're a beginner and you're just starting out, you might want to start off with a chair that's a little bit shorter. To start this exercise, you're going to stand facing the chair, and your crescent kick is going to come up and over your chair, from one side to the other. It's going to be counterclockwise for your crescent kick. Facing the chair, you're going to take one leg and you're going to kick it all the way up and over just like that. Facing the chair, kick it up and over.

This exercise is really going to target your inner thighs as you get that leg up and over the chair, you're squeezing those inner thighs together. It's also going to work the quads and the back of the legs as well, but the focus is on the inner thigh and the quad area. You can do ten to 12 reps on one side and then ten to 12 reps on the other side. That's how I usually like to do it. So again, just facing the chair, kick that leg up and over. Up and over. Up and over. Other side, same way. Kick it up and over. Up and over. So, with the left leg, you're going clockwise. With the right leg you're going counterclockwise over the chair. And that's how you do the crescent kick over a chair.
