Cable Goblet Squats with Pulse – For this exercise you will use the double rope extension on the cable machine. Put the extension on the bottom clip. Pull the extension up to your chest. Squat, do a pulse, stand, and squat again. When squatting be sure you are pushing through your heels and remain flat on your feet. When you stand up from your squat pop forward your hips. Do this for one minute.
Right and Left Leg RDL- This exercise requires balance. Holding a kettlebell stand on your right/left leg and raise the opposite leg. Keeping the leg you are standing on straight, bend at your hips lowering the kettlebell to your feet while kicking out your opposite leg. Do thirty seconds on each leg. If it is to difficult to complete this exercise on one leg modify it to standing on both legs and do the exercise for one minute.
