This builds muscle in our entire body. You’ll have stronger foundation in your legs, and be able to hit moves harder.

Tip: Start with just your body weight, then slowly add weights!

4. For easier hip and leg movements

Glute Bridges

3 sets of 12

Targeted areas: glutes, hamstrings, core

Glute bridges will increase your turnout by targeting your hips, and make all your leg movements look stronger.

5. To improve coordination

Skaters

3 sets of 30 seconds

These will strengthen your glutes and improve stability. Skaters help with balance and posture, making your movements look smooth and effortless.
