Kathy Smith's Winter Workout Challenge
Try these exercises to get fit at home: no gym or overcoat needed
- Place your weight on your right foot and pivot your body 180 degrees back to the left.
- Land on the left foot with a wide stance, with your body facing the left wall.
- As your left foot lands, brace your core and squat down for two “pulses": Sit back into squat position, raise back up just a few inches, quickly squat back down, and return to standing.
- Keeping your right foot as the anchor, pivot 180 degrees forward, until your body now faces the right wall. Do two pulse-squats.
- Do 16 reps on each side.
Stick with the pivoting action, focused on your form. Maintaining a tight, stabilized midsection, make sure that every time you squat down, your weight is in your heels and you’re sinking the hips down back behind you, never letting the knees jut out past the toes.
