With your mid-back across an elevated bench (or table or couch) and feet planted firmly on the ground, push through your heels and squeeze glutes to lift hips. Use the hiit bar or sandbag across your hips for extra resistance.
Curtsy Step Up Lunge
Begin standing on the step with hiit across back. Step back and off into a curtsey lunge. Return to step and repeat on other side. Can be done flat on floor, too.
Reverse Lunge Hop Up
Begin standing on step. Lunge back and off step, bringing knee one inch of floor. Then hop up onto leg on the step. Repeat 5 times each leg before switching. Can be done flat on floor, too.
Stiff Sumo Deadlift
Holding hiit bar in front of body with straight legs in a wide stance, do a stiff-leg dead lift. Squeeze back of legs and glutes to come back to upright. Don’t round back.
Begin standing up straight. Jump feet apart and touch floor. Be sure to bend legs and get your butt low! Don’t just bend over. We’re trying to work the inner thighs here.
