Oohh boy, this is a tough one!
More so because of the focus which is required in order to keep the heel pointing towards the ceiling, rather than pointing your toes ( as my body automatically wants to do! )
Last week’s challenge was all about the donkey kick, and this week, it’s all about the heel to ceiling kickback.
Hard. Hard. Hard.
BUT if done correctly, will totally get those glutes on fire!
To recap, so far, for the exercise challenge portion of the Sunday BumDay Challenge, we’ve worked with a 10 minute elevated kickback plank, a 7 minute elevated bridge, 250 glute squeezes and 10 minutes of donkey kicks. SO for this week, I’m thinking……super, duper high rep!
Are you ready for these reps?
Because there’s going to be…………………………………….1000 of them!
The Sunday BumDay Challenge Day #5
This week’s exercise challenge is the: Heel to Ceiling Kickback
+ exercise mat
+ foam roller – but you can use anything that will support your shoulders comfortably off the ground!
Get down on all fours and lower your upper body towards the ground. Position the foam roller ( or you can use a few towels ) under your shoulders and cross your arms in front of you.
Working with one leg at a time, use your glutes to kick your leg ( following the heel) towards the ceiling,as high as you can until your leg is fully extended. Lower and repeat.
1000 reps may seem like a lot, but if you grab a pen and paper and place it in front of you, you can do 100 reps on each side and keep track by ticking a line off on your paper. Alternate legs after completing 100 reps, and keep going until you have 10 ticks on your paper.
1000 reps babyyyyy!!!!!
