Start standing with feet wider than hip width apart. Bring the heels in and the toes to point out. Keeping a long spine, start to sit down into a sumo squat. Bend the arms by the sides and bring the hands to fists in front of the face, chin slightly tucked towards the chest. Punch one fist forward, then the other, with the knuckle side of the hands facing up. Continue this move, going at a fast pace for one minute.
