Preparatory posture:
Stand with your feet apart and your knee slightly bent. The distance between the two feet is about one and a half times wider than your shoulders.

The procedures of the exercise:
Step 1:
While waving your waist right, you should curve the knee of your right leg inside a little and exhale with your perineum raised. At this time, your left leg is being pulled to the extent that it is oblique and straight with the outside of its instep stuck to the ground.
Step 2:
During the period of moving your waist from right to left at the same height with your almost unmoved chest kept where it is, you should inhale with your perineum relaxed. It is suggested that the best way to keep your chest unmoved be to fix your eyes forward at one point.
Step 3:
While waving your waist left, you should curve the knee of your left leg inside a little and exhale with your perineum raised. At this time, your right leg is being pulled to the extent that it is oblique and straight with the outside of its instep stuck to the ground.
In this way, alternating between waiving your waist right and left practices 50 times each.

The outer part of the human leg has gallbladder meridian of foot-shaoyang, bladder meridian of foot-taiyang and stomach meridian of foot-yangming. The exercise can act directly on such meridians as those of liver, spleen, kidney, stomach, gallbladder, and bladder, etc., which can strengthen your muscles and bones and stimulate the internal flow of Chi energy, because the shrinkage of the legs can accelerate the vein blood to flow back to the heart, improve the blood circulation, facilitate the circulatory system of the groin lymphoid tissue and promote the defensive function of lymph gland.
