Are you looking to kick off a new fitness routine or simply make yours a little better? Our 60 Seconds To Fit video series is here to help. "Each exercise targets multiple muscle groups," says celeb trainer Sadie Kurzban. This short clip, produced in coordination with Calia, breaks down exactly how to do a full wheel. "The move is part of the perfect full-body routine if you can just barely squeeze in a workout." Full Wheel Scared to go upside down? Don't be! "This yoga-inspired pose is definitely easier than it looks," says Kurzban. Before you lift into position, place both feet close enough to your butt that your fingers touch your heels when lying down. You can also prep by gently bending your wrists back and forth. If you're still working on flexibility, modify the move by raising only your pelvis and thighs, leaving your shoulders planted firmly on the ground. Either way, save the bridge for the end of your workout. "It’s a full-body stretch," says Kurzban. "You really want to go into it warmed up." Try to complete the move twice, holding for 15 seconds each time.
