Extended Arms

While walking, extend arms straight out front of you. Make loose fists. Bend arms to bring fists into chest so elbows are back and slightly below the chest. Let your arms move naturally with the pace of your steps. Repeat several times before going on to the next move. (Counting while doing this may be difficult, so do however many feel right to you.)
