Exercise of the month: donkey kicks. 


Also called glute kickbacks.

This month is a body weight exercise for a change. That means it can be performed anywhere with ample space, don’t want you kicking any ornaments over now!

A great move for the glutes.

Start by kneeling on the floor as shown in the picture above with your hands on the floor in front of you. Bring one leg up behind you with the knee bent to a 90 degree angle then bring back down to the starting position. Do multiple reps on one leg – 10 is ideal – then switch legs. I would suggest 3-4 reps until you feel the burn in the glutes.

It’s a perfect exercise to do at the gym as part of your leg workout or even as part of a home workout!
