Alternate Side Kicks Exercise Hi everybody, this is Mimi from Brazil and today I’ll be showing you how to do the alternating side kicks. The alternating side kicks, it’s a really fun exercise. This exercise is really, really great. You need to work your butt, gluts, hip flexors, also your core and also your working your balance and stability. The first thing you can do is just balance it out, put your entire body weight in one leg and kick the opposite leg to the side. Keep your abs straight; suck it in, chest out. Keep looking forward, feet like legs apart. Balance in the other side and kick, okay. So you got one, a two, if you are really good at it. You can go really fast. And that way, you’d been working a cardio vascular capacity as well and just keep going. You should start feeling your hip flexors and gluts and alternate and boot. I believe that if you go and you work upper body back to back with lower body. I've seen amazing results. You just keep your heart rate going. You work one muscle group, the big one and you're going back to back with another muscle group. Try to work with high repetitions. Try to do like two sets of 25, 30 wraps and that way, you're going to get rid of that extra baggage in the back. And you’ll be able to go to Brazil and wear some really tiny little bikinis and like we do. So go ahead and you go work and kick and kick. Keep your abs super tight and just keep going in three, two and one. And I’ll see you on the beach.
