dynamic lateral leg swings movement demo

Start in a standing position. Using a PVC or other apparatus for balance, kick one leg out to the side, away from your hip to belly button level. Once at the apex of the kick, turn the toes upwards to the sky (externally rotating). Allow the foot to fall back towards earth passing your standing leg.
