The Triangle

The Triangle gives you the chance to really challenge your muscles and build strength. The exercise stretches the sides of your body and creates strength and stability in your arms, legs, and trunk.

You need both ankle weights and one hand weight for this exercise. When you're ready, follow these steps:

1. Stand behind a chair with your legs apart, your right foot pointing to the chair, and your left foot at a 45-degree angle with respect to the chair.

Your body should be facing left when positioned behind the chair in this position. Your feet should be a little wider than your hips.

2. Grasp the top of the chair with your left hand; with your right hand, hold the hand weight at your side, palm facing your body (see Figure 18-11a).

This is the starting position.
