Stay strong and limber while you garden with three simple moves from certified personal trainer Anna Griffith of Performative Element.
Donkey kick with lawn chair
Hamstrings, glutes, core, lower back; good for balance.
1 Stand with your hands on the back of a sturdy lawn chair.
2 Pull your abdominals in toward your spine, and bend the left leg in toward your chest with a strongly flexed foot.
3 Engage your glutes, then kick the leg back and up toward the sky, keeping your hips level and your core tight.
4 Hold for a moment, and then bring the knee back toward your chest. Repeat 10 times, then switch sides.
