Base Body Babes’ Simple + Effective workout
1. Body weight squat
Start with your fingers crossed over with your chest nice and upright. Keep your feet pressed down and slightly wider than hip-width apart and slightly pointed outwards.
Look straight ahead and squat to as deep as your mobility allows.
If you can’t squat too low, that’s okay – just as long as you’re maintaining a nice neutral spine position and you’re looking straight ahead with your chest up. Also make sure your knees are pointing in the same direction as your toes.
2. Glute bridge
Lie flat on the floor with your knees up. Keep your feet further away from your bottom to engage your glutes more.
Drive your hips to the ceiling, squeezing your glutes, and then lower your body back down.
To really engage the glutes, lift your toes off the floor.
3. Mountain climber
Start on all fours. Place your hands directly underneath your shoulders and get up on your toes. Keep your core nice and engaged.
Drive one knee up towards your chest then drive it back down. Repeat on the other leg. This is one rep.
To make this more difficult, pick up the pace and run it out. Ensure your core is nice and tight throughout.
Hold for 20 seconds
Get down on all fours. Place your elbows directly under your shoulders. Keep your hands flat and separated and your legs separated, too. Engage your core and slightly sink your pelvis forwards. Hold this position for 20 seconds. Ensure you don’t allow your body to sag and you keep a nice neutral spine position throughout.
