Lateral Shuffle

Instructions

Preparation

Stand in athletic position; wide stance with knees, hips, and arms bent, chest up.

Execution

Step sideways in direction of intended path with lead leg. Side step with trailing leg and push off second side step with lead leg before landing trailing leg. Continue for shuffling pattern to desired point.

Comments

Start slow and build up pace. Intensity is normally increased by shuffling faster or taking wider strides so that plant of trailing foot occurs beyond point at which leading foot had just left. Also known as Side Shuffle or just Shuffle.
