31 Days of Fitness: X Roll Ups

Welcome to 31 Days of Fitness, where we bring you a targeted exercise move every day for the entire month, so you can build up your very own personal workout routine to your best body ever.  Each move in this series was designed by former professional dancer and fitness guru Andrea Rogers, whose Xtend Barre studios have grown to 170 locations worldwide.  

Her body lengthening and butt toning exercises can be done with no equipment, in the comfort of your own home! We’ve also enlisted model Julie Henderson (who has seven consecutive Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues under her belt, btw) to star in our easy to follow fitness gifs, making this the easiest workout plan you’ve ever had.  Check out below for today’s move! 

Today’s move: X Roll Ups


Begin by lying supine, with your feet flexed and hands crossed in a x position at your chest. Roll your upper body to seated as your arms reach up and over your head to an extended X, crossed at the wrists. Roll back down with control and repeat for 8-16 reps.
