The first thing the Rockettes are known for are their incredible synchronized high kicks.
The second thing they're known for are the way their legs look when they do those kicks. Countless hours of practice, rehearsals and performing (sometimes up to four shows a day) leave these ladies in tip-top shape.
This holiday season take some cues from Stacy Paydo, a Los Angeles-based Rockette, who created a fusion workout of ballet, Pilates and yoga that'll get you on the way to the famed Rockette legs (if you run through this set of exercises enough times, that is).
Before you start, do a five-minute warm-up by taking a brisk walk or another easy cardio exercise. Do each exercise 8 to 10 times and repeat the set three times for a full workout.Click here for the photo gallery.
