7. Straight leg lift
Begin in a plank position either on your hands or elbows. Engage your left glute and lift your left foot off the ground a few inches, keeping your left leg straight from the hip. Begin to pulse the whole leg up, ensuring your glute is firing. If you’re struggling to activate your glutes, try a donkey kick by bending your knee and pulse-kicking the heel up. Do 20 each side and repeat.
8. Climbers with rotation
Starting in your plank position, bring your right knee to your left elbow, then send the leg back staying in a hover. Then slowly rotate your hips and send the right leg behind you, tapping your foot on the group, then rotate the body back to plank position. If this is too challenging, stick to a regular mountain climber and add the rotation when you are stronger. Do 20 taps each side.
