P.S. sorry for the poor quality of these pictures, I worked with what I had πŸ˜‰

Exercise tips:

  • For all lower body moves, make sure your knee stays behind your toes!
  • Seat squats- the goal is to lower yourself controlled, as soon as your butt touches the surface you explode up to standing by squeezing your glutes
  • Split squat- are a huge balance test! Beware πŸ˜‰
  • Step ups are seen in B1,2,&3 but as noted in the workout, you can make these box jumps where you jump up onto the surface and jump or step down!
  • Pulse squat- when you hit the bottom of the squat, stay there, and pulse up and down for the whole 30 seconds. It feels like you are doing a squat hold, except your bottom is bouncing up and down slightly. Keep your pulses to 1-2 inches only!
