5 Best Holiday Workouts: It’s Crunch Time


Donkey Kicks

Get into the modified push-up position, and switch gears while working your abdominal and gluteal muscles. While in that modified push-up position, move so that your knees are directly below your hips (keeping your back flat), push one leg back until it is straight out behind you, allowing your leg no higher than hip height.

Pull your knee directly into the center of your chest, and bring back to the starting position, then alternate sides. (If you want to add difficulty or sculpt the muscles more you can always add in ankle weights or resistance bands.)
