How often you want to do this workout during the week will depend on you. If your feeling great and up for it then that's awesome do the exercise. If your feeling really sore and tired, listen to your body and have a rest day. It important to listen to your body on how your feeling especially when it comes to exercising.
Now let's go over the movements!
Think of it as a backwards lunge but with a twist. Move one foot back into a lunge but instead of straight back, move your foot to a 90 degree angle as if you were curtsying. Lightly touch the floor with your knee or barely coming into contact with the floor and come back up, repeat with other leg.
One Leg Hip Bridge/ Hip Bridge
Lay on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the ground. Lift your booty off the ground and tighten your core. Extend one leg straight and in a controlled movement drop your booty back down to the ground, barely touching the floor and lift it back up again towards the ceiling. Switch legs and repeat. For the basic hip bridge movement do the same movement without alternating legs, keeping both feet on the ground. Use arms on the ground for balance if needed.
Fire Hydrant Side Raises
Get on the ground with all fours, your hands flat on the ground and arms straight, your knees, shins, and feet on the ground. Tighten your core and in a controlled movement lift your knee outward towards the ceiling into a 90 degree angle or however far up you can extend and slowly bring it back into the starting position. Repeat the same with other leg.
Back Step Lunge
Exactly as it sounds, bring one leg back into a backwards lunge, lightly touching the floor with your knee or barely touching at all. Bring leg back into starting position and repeat the same with other leg.
Get on the ground with all fours, your hands flat on the ground and arms straight, your knees, shins, and feet on the ground. Bring one leg up towards the ceiling in a loose 90 degree angle (be careful to not over extend your back.) Hold for one second then bring your leg back to the starting position. Repeat the same with other leg.
Pretty much lunging while walking! Bring on leg in front of your in a 90 degree angle, barely touching your knee to the floor. Bring other leg to meet and stand up. Repeat the same movement now with that other leg that came to meet.
Lateral Band Walks/ Lateral Walks
Put a band right above knee. Bend knees slightly. Walk sideways to the left as recommended reps while maintaining tension on the band. Walk sideways to the right as recommended reps. If you don't have a band, no worries! You can still do this movement effectively the same without a band.
Jumping Air Squats
Alright we are doing one squat movement but this isn't your basic squats! Bring your two feet out with your toes pointing slightly outward, squat down with your booty not passing your knee. Explosively jump straight up towards the ceiling, flowing back down to meet your squatting position and repeat!
