• String bean – Make yourself as tall and thin as can be. Arms together and stretch up high. Feet together and stand on your tip toes.

Before you start your exercise, talk about warming up to increase blood flow to our muscles and prepare our bodies for temperature changes.

Warming up exercises can include arm circles, squats and stretches.
