Workout Wednesday December 16

"Perform each exercise for 40 seconds, with a 20 second rest in between! Rest for 1 minute, and then repeat this circuit 4 times." 

Ice Skaters
Start by standing on one leg, and hop from side to side as if you were hopping over a puddle. To give your core an added challenge, reach your opposite arm to opposite standing leg on the floor as you switch. 
Squat with high kick
Sink back as if you were about to be seated in a chair, keeping your weight in your heels. As you rise, alternate kicking your leg forward. If you would like to switch it up each round, you can kick sideways or backwards as well. 
Hip Circles
Begin on all fours, distributing your weight evenly among your hands and knees, holding your core nice and tight to maintain a flat back. Lift and circle one leg continuously for 40 seconds and switch each round. If this feels a bit too intense, switch legs at 20 seconds! 
Glute Bridge
Lie on your back with your feet planted on the floor. Squeeze your glues as you raise your hips off of the floor. As always, hold your core strong and don’t forget to breathe! Continue to raise and lower your hips, until the last 10 seconds— Squeeze it at the top and don’t drop! 
Bicycle Crunch
We’re going to finish this circuit with some ab engagement, while burning out those glues! While lying on your back, control the motion of your elbow crossing to meet your opposite knee. The closer your legs are to the ground as they extend, the more challenging this will be for your core!
