Moving right along! Welcome to day 3! Have you had a chance to check out the first two days? If so, how’d you do? Easy? Hard? Not so bad? Be sure to leave your feedback! Ok, here’s day 3:
Materials Needed: Nothing! Just you!
Muscles Targeted: Core (abdominals), hamstrings, glutes
Begin in plank position with your knees off the floor, body in a straight line with your shoulders. Immediately SWING one leg straight up off the floor, keeping your knees straight and hips down. Lift up as far as you can go and HOLD for 5 seconds.
Bring your leg back down behind you, but only tap your toe to the floor, then swing your leg out to the side. Keeping your hips down and in line with your shoulders.
Bring your leg back behind you, tapping your toe to the ground, then repeat step 1, swinging your leg up.
So the pattern is: Swing up, tap, swing out, tap, swing up, tap, swing out, tap.
By the time you get to about the 5th rep, your glutes and hamstrings should be BURNING! Remember to switch legs after 10 reps (or more if you’re up for the challenge).
This is a tough one, but I know you can do it! Let me know if you have any questions about any of the moves so far. And let me know your progress!
