Keep the pelvis absolutely straight and still and feel pull around through the center and then reverse it all together. So you're doing to get your legs involved four times and then four times with the other leg. Again, try and keep your pelvis absolutely. If you want to put your hand on your hip to help to balance do so by all means in widths. First, go right through the center line and around and run.
