Allow yourself to start to spring around the room, with your loose rag doll body flopping all over the place. Stop and shake all over like a dog shaking off water. 9. Stand on one foot and rotate the ankle of the other foot around in a circle. Change the direction of the rotation. Now rotate the knee around in both directions.
