Move of the Day: Hot Seat
Hot Seat Targets: Butt and legs
*With back to bench or chair, stand a foot in front of bench seat and bend elbows to clasp hands in front of chest.
*Lift left leg straight in front of you a few inches off ground and bend right knee to sit down briefly on bench.
*Keeping left leg raised throughout, stand up immediately, pressing through right heel to straighten right leg. Do 12 reps. Switch legs, repeat.
*Tip: Want to up the challenge? Try to just barely brush the seat with your behind, then stand up immediately.
I love this move. It makes me sore EVERY time! If you’re in the gym, try with a barbell on your back. I use a 35lb bar.
