Jump Rope- 30-60 seconds
Lateral to X-Lunge Hinge- 8x each side
Jump Rope- We love jumping rope for it awesome cardiovascular benefits and mega calorie burn. Plus…you’ll feel like a kid again! Stay light and springy with you skips and maintain tall open posture throughout the entire set. A good wrist flick will keep the rope swing smooth. Start with 30 second bursts and try to work up to 1 minute intervals.
Lateral to X-Lunge Hinge- For this combo, begin standing tall with your legs hip width apart. Take a big step out to the side on the right. Sit back into that right hip, hinging at both the hip and knee. Allow the left leg to stay long and straight. Press off the floor and bring your right leg back towards your body’s midline. Instead of dropping the right foot under you, bring it across and behind you. Hinge at the hips and knees to sit back into a curtsy or x-lunge. Try to keep your hips square and really sit back into your front hip. Complete 8 of each on the right and then repeat with your left leg.
