Exercise of the Week: Fire Hydrants

Today’s Exercise of the Week also has a pretty fun name (remember, last week’s was Spidermans?), but we really love it because in addition to building a strong core, fire hydrants also work the hips and glutes!

Start on all fours with your back parallel to the ground. If you’re performing the exercise with ExcelCord, the resistance should be to the side. Keeping your shoulders level and knees bent, slowly raise your outside knee parallel to the ground and back to the starting position to complete one repetition.  

We recommend performing two sets of 12 reps on each leg.
