Thinking of digging out the winter tights? Do these and strut into Autumn.
KBPT Workout Eight – Level One – Legs and Glutes
Exercise One (Top) – Static Lunge. Start standing up straight and lunge your right leg back. Ensure your right heel is straight and off the floor. Your right knee should be as low to the ground as it can, without touching. Depth will come so concentrate on form at first. Your left leg should have your knee tracking over your ankle so everything is in line. It really helps to do this in front of a mirror to get the alignment correct. Once you have done one leg ensure you do the other to keep everything even.
Exercise Two (Left) – From standing, kneel down on your right leg and then your left. Then up on your right leg and up on your left. Switch over, down on your left leg and then on your right, up on your left leg and up on your right. Keep alternating between the two. You may need to steady yourself on something to build this up at first but in time you will be strong enough to do it without support.
Timings – 1 min of each exercise with minimal rest. Do two rounds of each exercise.
Progression – Increase to three rounds. Add leg weights.
