#WednesdayWorkout – Airplanes!

Airplanes

You don’t have to take off on a jet plane to do this exercise! The Airplane is an effective exercise to help strenghthen your back, glutes and hamstrings.

 

  • Standing tall, hinge from the hips as one leg lifts off the ground.
  • Reaching your toes back behind you and keeping the hips pointed towards the ground, the chest will naturally bend towards the ground as the back leg goes up
  • Keep your back straight and head pointed forward as you bend – hold for 3-5 seconds and lower the leg and finish nice and tall – switch legs and repeat
  • HINT: If you are struggling to keep your balance only lift your leg a short distance off the ground. You will still get a workout and you can then you can work your way higher!
