Begin by pulling the handles toward your chest, then in a circular motion bring the handles out wide away from your side completing the circle back to the starting position. Reverse directions. (For increased core engagement, this could be done unilaterally.)
With feet slightly staggered, hands in position 2, core engaged.
Press Stix away from the body. Make sure there is no body sway during the activity. If there is, then reduce the resistance or move the user back a bit until they can control their core. (Progression: unilateral either with opposite arm in contracted or relaxed position.)
