8-9 By now you're in such good form you can add two new exercises

Here Bonnie demonstrates exercises you should add in the fifth week to your 15-minute daily period. They will trim the legs and thighs and help you avoid the stiffness and clumsy gait of unexercised knees. The hip shift (No. 8) works on the inside of the thigh; the deep knee bend (No. 9) on calves, knees, thighs and feet. Next week: the side stretch.

TIPS FOR LIVING: You can exercise along with Bonnie Prudden every Thursday on Dave Garroway's show Today, NBC-TV, beginning at 7 a.m. E.D.T.

Stand with your feet apart and knees stiff. Now sit as far over your left leg (A) as you can, being sure not to bend your knees. Keeping your upper body perfectly still, move your hips over to the right leg (B). This exercise should be repeated 10 times.

Assume a squatting position (A), with knees together and your back straight. If balancing is hard, put one hand on a supporting object. Rise slowly to your toes (B), keeping seat and abdominal muscles tight. Lower feet to floor and continue down to A.
