Booty Balance CHALLENGE! The Leg Balance Sculptor
Balance and flexibility are seriously important aspects of overall fitness. This move will help you target your glutes, legs and core while giving you a nice hammy stretch.
Challenge: 3 sets of 20 (10 per side)
You’ll need: A rope, towel or resistance band.
How To Do It
Kneel on the ground, knees together and body forming a 90-degree angle. Bring your arms straight overhead, holding the rope taut with both hands.
Keep your upper body still and core engaged as you bring your left foot forward and place it flat on the floor so you’re in a lunge position, then push through your left heel to come to standing. In one motion, raise your right leg straight behind you and lower your torso toward the floor, keeping your back flat and arms overhead, until your body forms a T.
Hold for three seconds, then reverse the movement to return to start. Repeat on the other leg. Continue alternating until you’ve done 10 reps on each side.
Advanced? Try this move with a barbell or holding dumbbells overhead. Tougher than it looks!
