Weekly fitness tip: The Mummy Kick

Sophomore Jenn Nguyen stands ready to begin the Mummy Kick warm up exercise. She is standing upright, with her legs shoulder width apart and her arms relaxed at her sides. All photos by Bridget Stagnitto.
Nguyen then raises her arms up to the height of her chest, placing her palms so they face the floor. Stay planted in the starting position until the next movement of the sequence.
Nyugen takes her right arm and crosses over her left, making an “x” shape with her arms. While making this motion, kick your respective leg forward (right arm crosses, right leg kicks).
Nyugen continues the exercise by alternating each side’s arm and leg movement. Increase the difficult by increasing speed! Also, remember to keep your arms and legs straight!
