This three-block workout is sure to make your core and lower body burn so good! Let's start block 1 with alternating reverse lunge. Initiate the movement by putting the weight slightly on your heels and hinging slightly forward on the hips. Emphasize the glutes and your front leg, NOT your back leg. Use the hinge of the hip. Keep your torso forward. Act as if you’re going to a sprint. The leg at the front is the one really controlling the movement and feeling the burn in the quadriceps –– just make sure that knee is always in line with your toes. You want to initiate the move by keeping the weight on your front foot and hinging through the hips as you put your back foot back and tap that knee to the ground. The idea is that you’re putting very little pressure on that back foot and using the hinge of the hip and front leg to do the movement. Next up are feet together squats. Use those legs as you press your knees together and press through your legs! This move helps your hamstrings and ankles, but make sure you’re only going as far as you can while keeping perfect form. Knock out another feet together squats in this second block! Keep those knees pressed together while working your hamstrings and ankles as you squat! Wrapping up block 2 with drinking birds. These are one of the absolute best exercises you can do for your back, posture and even flexibility. It seems like a simple exercise, but you want to make sure you’re keeping your legs, back and upper body engaged. Once you master this variation, you can move on to one-legged exercises that will help strengthen your legs and feet. That might sound weird, but strong feet will prevent plantar fasciitis, ankle pain and other pain in your legs. Be sure to keep your feet planted straight and really focus on keeping the weight on them as you push your butt backwards for this move. Let’s do some more drinking birds in block 3! Remember to keep your whole body active –– from your legs to your upper body to your back. Wrapping this whole workout with shoulder bridge lifts. These will challenge your glutes to lift you up through the exercise. They build on the shoulder bridge by adding a lift where you press into your heels to lift your hips and chest up as far as you can.
