February Workout Step-by-Step
Skater Lunges: Sets 2-5, Reps 4-15 each side
Start upright with both feet about hip width apart. Take a wide step to the side with one leg then lean the body to that side while bringing the other leg behind, reaching further out to the side than the first moving foot. Bring the hind leg back to its original side with another wide step and repeat the hind step with the other leg.
Plank Arm Raises: Sets 2-5, Reps 4-15 Each Side
Start in a push-up plank position with the body straight and resting your weight on your toes and hands. Raise one arm straight in front of yourself and hold for a second then bring it back to the starting position. Repeat on the other side.
Side Crunches: Sets 2-5, Reps 5-20 Each Side
Start laying on one side with your torso slightly facing upwards with your legs extended out and your top arm bent with the hand resting behind the head and bottom arm outstretched in front of you on the floor to stabilize the body. You will then flex the core muscles to bring the top elbow and top knee together while the torso and legs are raised off of the ground from the hip, then bring the legs and torso softly back to the ground. Repeat on each side.
Sit Outs: Sets 2-5, Reps 2-20 each side
Start in a crouched position with only the hands and balls of the feet touching the ground. With one leg, step to the outside of itself and take the other leg and thread it under the body between the outside hand and foot and extend it out to the side while raising the outside hand while the other hand maintains contact with the ground. As you are extending the threaded foot out, raise your chest and hip upwards. Then return the threaded foot back and bring all limbs back to the starting position and repeat on the opposite side.
