LEG CURL  (SLIDEZ)
1. Lie faceup on the floor with your arms at your sides, legs straight, and heels on a pair of Slidez.
2. Lift your hips off the ground while keeping a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders.
3. Pull the slides toward your butt with your heels while keeping your hips tall.
4. Return to the starting position by slowly extending your legs and pushing the Slidez away from you.
5. Continue for the remainder of the set.
COACHING TIP
Initiate the movement by firing your glutes, keeping them contracted throughout the movement. Keep your hips up towards the ceiling as you pull your heels toward your butt.
FEEL IT
Working your glutes, hamstrings, and lower back.

ALTERNATING WAVES – TRAINING ROPE PRO
1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, your weight on the balls of your feet, knees bent, your hips back, your back straight, and eyes forward.
2. Move your hands opposite to one another in an up-and-down motion as if you are slamming the rope to the ground while keeping the rope under a three-foot ceiling. The amplitude of waves you create in the rope should be small.
COACHING TIP
Make sure you’re only moving your arms and hands, the rest of your body should remain still.
FEEL IT
Working your entire body.
