Get your heart pumping and loosen up your joints with this great warm-up.
Place your hands behind your head, squat down till you are at a 90 degree angle and as you stand back up, kick one of your legs straight out. It sounds easy but it is a challenge to kick your leg straight out.
Repeat with other leg. Do 30 sets on each leg.
Mini-band squats with a kickback
Place the mini-band around your ankles or under your knees for extra tension. With the band around your ankles or knees, squat low, trying to keep you spine straight and your knees behind your toes.
As you straighten up, kick one leg behind you, keeping your leg straight as you do so. These movements combined with the resistance of the mini-bands will isolate your glutes. Keep on squatting and alternating legs. Do 15 sets each leg.
Toe Touch Lateral Squats
Prepare to feel the burn with this one! The key is focusing on your balance and moving slow. Balance your weight on one leg and drop into a single legged squat, the lower you can go the better. Now with your other leg, try straightening it out to the side and touching the ground.
The goal is holding the squat for the entire time, while you move your free leg to the side and back. Do 20 sets each leg.
Got your dumbbells? Ok, let’s go! Standing in a wide stance, legs wider than your shoulder width and toes turned outwards at a 45-degree angle. Place your dumbbells on your upper thighs.
Now slowly squat, try and squat until your legs are parallel to the ground and then slowly return to the starting position. Keep your muscles tensed the entire time, so basically, no resting! Do 20 sets.
Grab your dumbbells again! You can use one or both, depending on how energetic you are feeling.
Start by standing with your feet together and your dumbbells by your side. Take a large step to the left with one of your legs and squat down, keeping your right leg straight and bending only your left leg with your left arm sitting on your hip. Try and feel the pull as you sit back on the squat. Try and touch the dumbbell in your right-hand to the ground, near to your left foot. Return to normal standing position and lunge to the right side. Do 12 to 15 sets each side.
Start by balancing on your right foot, then squat down and then jump as far as you can to the left, landing on your opposite foot, the left-foot. Steady yourself, and repeat but on your left-foot and jump back to your right side. Try and control each jump and land smoothly. Do 12 to 15 sets each side.
