Get off your derriere & work it!
Have you been finding yourself couch surfing or sitting around much more then usual since being in "Self Isolation"? This quick and no-equipment-needed workout is great for activating those "sleepy" glutes we can get from all that sitting, tones and lifts the all while building strength in our core! This is a great exercise to do with a partner or even the whole family to get the blood flowing and body moving!
Leg Lifts: This move and the next primarily target the glutes, hip flexors, and abs. Position yourself on all fours on a mat, with your hands underneath your shoulders, and your knees under your hips. Lift the right leg up towards the ceiling while keeping your leg as straight as possible, and your glutes squeezed. With control bring down your leg to tap your right toe to the ground and then return it back up towards the ceiling to complete a total of 25 reps. Then complete 25 reps on the left side.
Donkey Kicks: While still on all fours, keep your right knee bent at a 90 degree angle and flex the foot as you pull your knee towards your right elbow. Then extended your right leg to a straight position, and repeat for a total of 50 reps on the right side. Once you’ve completed that, switch to the left leg for 50 reps.
Burpee: Only 10 reps! Begin standing with your legs shoulder-width apart. Place your hands on the floor and kick your legs back so you end up with your stomach and thighs on the floor. Your elbows should be bent. From this position, press up like you're doing a push-up and push your hips up. Jump your feet under your hips and stand. Finish the movement by jumping in the air and bringing your hands over your head. Repeat. Want to blast fat and tone up quickly? This is the movement to get you there!
