Kneeling Hinge

Move Targets: Core and Glutes


Step 1: Begin kneeling with your legs about hip-width apart, your toes pointed behind you and your arms extended straight out, holding a dumbbell in front of your chest. Brace the abs and maintain a straight line from your knees to your head.


Step 2: Hinge back as far as possible. Pause for a second. Squeeze the inner thighs, abs and glutes to lift you back to your starting position. Don't break at the hips to try to get back up — instead, decrease your range of motion or try it without the dumbbell.
