6 Explosive Moves to Light Up Your Core and Scorch Your Lower Body

Side-to-Side Drop Squat

Keeping the chest up and back flat, begin laterally hopping side to side, dropping the inside arm in between both feet. If your mobility allows, touch your hand to the ground. Continuously move side to side. One rep equals lateral hop to both sides. Complete 12 to 15 reps.

Reverse Lunge to Kickstand

Step back into a reverse lunge, keeping your front knee in line with the ankle. From the reverse lunge, step back into a narrow lunge, with your toe tracking over your front knee. Keep your chest and eyes up the entire time. Perform 10 to 12 reps on the first leg, before completing 10 to 12 reps on the other side.

SLDL to Reverse Kickstand

Extend your right arm and right leg as far as you can in both directions, maintain balance on the opposite leg. Then, while still holding your balance, bring your back leg into a reverse lunge, with your back knee just touching the ground. Without dropping the moving foot, move back to the SLDL and repeat the exercise. One rep equals one SLDL and one reverse lunge. Complete 10 to 12 reps on one side before finishing with 10 to 12 reps on the other.
