Booty Challenge! Wraparound Ankle Touch
This move will challenge your entire body and fire up your glutes using just your body weight. You’ll also get a decent ab & inner thigh workout in the process.
Challenge: 3 sets of 12 per side or 3 x 1 minute per leg.
Do them consecutively or throw them into your workout interval style (in a 30 minute workout, you’d do a 2 sets (one per leg) every 8 minutes or so.
USE YOUR LEGS. It’s easy to want to simply reach down, but much harder to maintain your balance that way (plus you’ll be targeting the wrong muscles). Lower your body down using your standing leg FIRST, then reach towards the outside of your foot.
Balance tip: Find a spot on the floor 6 feet in front of your feet and focus on it as you do the move. Engage your core throughout the move for greater stability.
Beginners: Place your non-reaching hand on a chair or wall to help with balance. Reach as far as you can, even if you can’t touch your foot directly.
To Do It:
A. Stand with your legs together and bend your left knee 90 degrees so you’re balancing on your right leg.
B. As you squat, reach your left arm across your body and try to touch the outside of your right foot with your fingertips. Feel the contraction in your core as you twist. Press back up to the starting position and repeat.
3 sets of 12! Go!!
BONUS challenge: feeling like a booty-ful day? Try 100 reps per side, and spread it out over the course of the day. 10 here, 20 there etc. :)
