But I'm being mindful that I'm lifting up and out of the mats. I'm superlight on the mat. Those obliques are working. I'm not slumping into the mat. It's not about that.

All right, come back into all four positions like this. So we're gonna go this direction. Gonna come onto all fours. Alright, so from here, ready, we're gonna lift that leg up, and we're just going to shoot it out. We all know this exercise, right?

Tried and tested for many, many, many years we've been doing the donkey exercise, but why shy away from a bit because it works. So why not do something that works? Right. (upbeat music) Now pulse it up we go, pulse, pulse, pulse, pulse, lift, but look at my upper body. I'm pushing away from that mat.

My hamstrings and glutes are firing up. Now we go. In, out, lift in, out, So you've got like a little attitude. Internal external lift, can make it a little bit bigger. Lift, in, out, lift.

See you in that lovely little attitude position. But I'm pushing away from that flow. So I'm engaging my upper body and my core is working equally as hard as my booty. Good. Toning that lower body ready for that swimsuit.

Ready hold it here we go. Pulse, attitude, attitude. Come on, guys. Throw me some attitude. I know you are right now you got a love hate relationship with me right now.

I get it. Go on. Up, up Keep it going. eight more, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two hold it here, kick. You thought you're out the woods then didn't you?

But guess what? I got yeah, come on, you can do it. four and in, three, and in, two and in one. Ooh. Is any consolation, you got me that too I totally felt my glutes.

I'm just gonna go the other direction. So we're gonna work the other leg so you can see me better. Alright, push down, lift that leg up up and down. So in our famous little donkey kicks, lets look at our form right now we're pushing away this scapular is drawing down towards your hips, and you're scooping those abs out those abs, are stabilizing your whole body so you can move with that hip joint. So it's not a time to do your to do list your shopping list.

This is about you time it's about you learning how to really maximize every single exercise you do to get the most out of it. We've got 20 minutes, we got to make that 20 minutes work right, push it up. And the only way we can make that 20 minutes work is if you put your mind and connected to your body. It's not just about the exercise is about you giving yourself some self love, right? Come on, you deserve it.

It's 20 minutes. It's nothing. And just think how great you're gonna feel at the end of this and your butt is gonna be so much higher. (laughs) I'm kidding. Keep it going up.

(upbeat music) We nearly there, lift Awesome work guys keeping that a little bit more. With that fabulous donkey kicks we love donkey kicks. Alright attitude goes out, lift. Remember so you internal, external lift, so it's in and out, mobility in that hip joint goes in, out, think of the knee going in and then it goes out and you got your attitude. In, out, attitude.

Now scoop out those abs. Watch your back and lifting with your glute, not your back. Alright, so you gotta be careful about that. The lifting with your butt. Watch your back.

Now, hold it here, we're gonna go up and down. There's your little attitude here lifting, up. Remember that upper body is fierce. It's working super hard. Come on, guys.

You are a boss, babe, you are gonna finish this out with that attitude. Alright, one more exercise ready we go, one kick, in, kick, in. And if you feel up to it, look at that leg. Look at that kick. Oh yes we feel the burn we love it.

Four more, in, four in, three, in two, in one. Oh my lord that was amazing. Don't we love it when we feel at booty and our inner thighs working. Feels so good. Hold that stretch, take your hands up and over to one side.

And switch. I really truly believe you have to work the glutes, your hamstrings, every single day. You can give it you know, one day off. I'll give you one day off but they need to be work to fit consistency. Especially if we're getting ready for that summer boat on that beach.

We need a little bit more love in that area. So a little bit more of these exercises just to tone the lower body. Give yourself a little bit more confidence when you're stretching yourself on that beach. Alright, just arches like this extended it out. Arche and then extend.

Slowly come up. Gonna come forward just a little bit. Take your right leg forwards, and then just stretch. Alright, stretching out those glutes. How do you feel good, awesome job.

20 minutes, you're done. (upbeat music) Switch to the other side. Stretch out those hips. And bring it together. All right guys, good job.

Let's move on.
