(6) Slide left leg out to side, keeping it straight, at same time swing right arm over head, keeping left arm almost flush with extended leg.

Opposite leg is bent at knee. Repeat in reverse. (7) Stretch up as far as possible several times, clasping hands over head. There it is, gals Rosario's anti-tummy formula. press agent.
