Trainer Trina’s Tips

  • Consult your physician before you start any new exercise program
  • Always warm up first for 5-10 minutes, dynamic stretches and foam roll if possible *goal is to increase the heart rate, warm up the body and muscles and reduce the risk of injury
  • Preform each rep with good form, technique, full range of motion and work within your limits
  • Rest when needed
  • Take it at your own pace, start slow if you are new to fitness
  • Listen to your body
  • Never work through pain, progression is the goal
  • Never sacrifice form for speed
  • Cool Down: 5-10 min – Always stretch and foam roll, gentle tension no pain
  • Schedule your workouts as an appointment in your calendar, read How to Do this here
  • Rest days are important and stretching is a must

Workout Instructions

Move #1: Lateral Squats High or Low Impact x 30 seconds 

  • Start standing with your feet together
  • Lean forward at the hips, keep the ABS tight to support the back
  • Drop and drive through the heels on the way down, squeeze the glutes on the way up
  • Arms bent, hands up *use them to propel you for power
  • Step your right foot out to the side and squat down
  • Push off with your right foot back to center and repeat on the left side
  • Add a little hop in the middle to increase your heart rate
  • Trina’s Tip: Keep your spine tall
  • Regression: Don’t step as wide or squat at deep
  • Progression: Add a high impact leap to the side or light dumbbells
  • Muscles Targeted: Core muscles – quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, hip flexors and abdominals and your cardiovascular system of course!

How to Do Lateral Squats

Move #2: Rear Shoulder Flies x 30 seconds 

  • Start in a standing position or sit on a bench or chair
  • Use just your arms or light weight dumbbells
  • Looking forward in front of you, feet shoulder width apart, arms at your side
  • Bend forward at the waist keeping the back straight and spine neutral
  • Slowly raise your arms to the side, palms down, squeeze the shoulders back and down
  • Long spine, ABS tight, lots of tension on the glutes to support your back
  • Trina’s Tip: Keep the weight fairly light, shoulders away from the ears, exhale when lifting the arms, gaze down, avoid moving the torso
  • Regression: One arm at a time and body weight only *the more bent your arms, the easier the move
  • Progression: Add light dumbbells or a resistance band * the straighter the arms, the harder the move
  • Muscles Targeted: Posterior deltoid (back of shoulders), core, back muscles / stabilizers, glutes, hips and deep abdominals
  • Note: Shoulders aren’t meant to be heavily loaded, use light weight

Move #3: Back Kicks or Glute Kickback

  • Start in a standing position feet shoulder width apart hands up in “guard position”
  • Stand on the right foot, find your balance and gently lift the left leg off the floor
  • Once you have your balance, lift the knee up, bend slightly at the hips then kick and drive the back heel towards the back *imagine kicking the shin of a person behind you
  • Slowly progress to kicking a little higher *make sure your muscles are warm
  • Rechamber the knee in and come back to the starting position and alternate sides
  • 4 parts to a kick: Up, kick out, in and back
  • Hands up in the fighter “guard position”
  • Trina’s Tip: Hold on to something secure if you struggle with balance
  • Regression: Kick at a lower level and hold on to the wall
  • Progression: Keep your hands up, kick a little higher and hold light dumbbells in your fighter arm “guard position”
  • Muscles Targeted: ABS, posterior chain, all of the back muscles, glute muscles, arms if you keep them up in “guard position”
