Donkey Kickback

Sets: 3 | Reps: 15 per leg

WHAT IT HITS: Glutes, hamstrings

WHY IT WORKS: Able to be done any time, anywhere, this move will work both your butt and your lower back — all you need is a floor!


1. Kneeling on the ground on all fours, with hands directly under shoulders and knees directly under your hips.

2. Lift your leg up until it is at a 90 degree angle. (Really think about the muscle that you are working. Squeezing your glutes and stay in control of the movement the entire time.)

3. Slowly lower your leg back to starting position.
