Speaker 1: All right. This time we’re going
to go ahead and do what we call toy soldiers or tin soldiers. We did a lot of these in
track when I was in high school. You’re going to go ahead. You can put your hands here.
You can put your hands really anywhere, but I highly recommend that you put your hands
up this way. You’re going to do right leg with your right hand. Left leg to left hand,
and you’re going to go ahead and stand in one place.
These kick my butt. You really want to do them slowly. No swinging. No relying on gravity
to do your work for you. You want to go … kick slowly, and you’re going to try … you’re
going to try, being the keyword there, to bring your leg up to your hand with the bands
on, slowly. We’re going to go ahead and do one, two. You’re going to … you feel it.
When you’re kicking like this, you feel it right here. Just standing here like this.
You feel it in your quads. You feel it in your hamstrings, feel it in your buns and
in your hips. This is a great lower body workout. Just moving your legs up and down. You’re
going to go ahead and do one, two, three, four, and you don’t have to do too many of
those for the … to be feeling it. You want to make sure that you aren’t … that you’re
keeping your legs, your feet facing outward when you’re doing this.
Make sure that you’re doing them correctly. There you go. You’re going to want to do backwards
kicks. You’re going to go ahead and point your toe for that one. That’s what helps me
keep my legs straightened where they should be. I put my hands out here, and I kick them
backwards. It tightens up your buns. You feel it so much in your buns and in your legs as
well. You’re going to go ahead and do couple of
those. I recommend that you keep your body up, and I have a tendency to lean. Go ahead
and keep your body straight and push back and push back and push back. Obviously, make
sure that you do it equally on each side. You feel that in your buns like crazy.
This time, we’re going to go ahead and do the stepping forward, and you’re going to
go ahead and kick, kind of like what we were just doing. You’re going to go ahead and kick
for your … this time you’re going to step forward. Before, you just kept your feet stationary,
but this time, you’re going to go ahead and kick forward.
Watch out, little man. You’re going to kick forward. Kick forward. Those are your regular
kicks, but this time you’re going to go boom. Give yourself a little bit of momentum there.
When you step forward, you’re going to try and get more rotation in your hips and move
your legs upwards more like so. Give yourself a little bit more momentum. When you take
these off … I’m going to go and show you the difference just from a couple of those
with your bands on. All right. You’re going to go ahead and kick
your legs up. Your kicks will be amazing. Cheerleaders, dancers, you know what I’m talking
about. In a dance line, we would normally line up, but … and then when you do, you
do have momentum without the bands, your kicks are phenomenal.
