Butt Kicks – Exercise of the Week

Butt Kicks – Exercise of the Week

The Butt-kicks exercise is a dynamic stretching exercise you can use before each of your workouts. Dynamic stretching is used to increase the range of movement, blood and oxygen flow to soft tissues prior to exertion and helps reduce the chances of injury.

  • Butt Kicks are performed just as the name implies – by literally kicking your butt with your foot.
  • Raise your heel as close as possible to your butt, using a fast leg movement on the balls of the feet .
  • Drive the knee up and bring the heel to the underside of the backside and the thigh parallel with the ground
  • Perform this exercise whilst slowly jogging forward but concentrate on moving your legs as fast as possible without increasing the speed your moving forward with.
  • Alternate legs until you have jogged 15-20m and then turn around and repeat the exercise until you are back at the starting position
