Standing Toe Kicks

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Glutes


Step 1: Stand behind your chair and lift one leg up and over the back side of your chair. Have the standing leg in the middle like your see Amanda do below. Extend the arm opposite to the leg on the chair for balance. Slightly bend your standing leg to keep the joints protected. For security, lightly press your other hand on the back of the chair.


Step 2: Point the toe and extend the leg in front of you. Notice how Amanda's supporting foot is slightly turned out for stability. If you can't get the leg high enough, raise it only as much as you can with good control. You should feel this in the quad of your kicking leg and the glute of your standing leg.
