Alternating Back Kicks Exercise Hi I'm Lana Titus and I'm from St. Paris, Ohio. Find something that you love to do and do it. Have fun, don’t do the same thing everyday, switch it up. Today, I'm going to show you how to do the alternating back kicks. This is really kicking butt. This is a beginner exercise and it really targets your glut, your hands strings and your lower back. We make sure that we’re doing that right by keeping a nice 90 degree angle with our back, nice flat back. And we don’t alternate from side to side. We keep everything in alignment. Let me show you how to do it. We’re going to go into a 90 degree angle, pulling our belly button into our side. Pecking our arms and our thigh and we’re going to kick back with our heel. We’re using our glut. Isn't this fun? Yeah. Work those gluts. And we’re going to do one leg at a time and then we’re going to alternate to the other way. When we do this exercise, you want to make sure that you have a nice flat back. It so flat that somebody can put a cup of coffee on there and it wouldn’t be even fall off. You don’t want to let your side rotate. You want to keep it nice and flat. You want to make sure that you have nice spinal alignment, your neck. You're looking straight down at the floor and don’t let that back curve in. Like I said, it’s a great exercise, tones those gluts, hands string, lower back and also get that core.
