Tyler Parsons: Hey this is Tyler Parsons, your fitness expert, coming with you today with a series of four exercises, not only designed to help out with the hamstrings and the hip flexibility, but also get that heart rate up.
All those of you that are pressed for time, now we can get a two for one deal here.
I'm going to be using some little slides here.
If you don't have these, grab a towel and this will work on just about any slick surface.
What we're going to do is we're going to start with our feet on here.
We're going down and we're going to do everybody's favorite, an inchworm.
All I'm trying to do is get pretty much straight down and we'll throw it in reverse.
I'm walking back up, trying to get those heels on the ground as fast as we can.
We're going back down again.
We're going to go through and do five us these.
Okay? There's two.
Really starting to feel a nice little stretch, working that hip hinge.
I'm getting it up in here as well as well as down in through there.
Keep that core nice and tight as you're going through this.
You don't want to allow that to drop down into there.
Keep it in through there.
There's going to be five.
From there, we'll walk back out, hand are going to be here, and I'm basically going to go in reverse.
We're going to do a pike.
I'm going to come up as high as I can, trying to keep those legs straight.
Nice and fast.
Two, three, four, and there's five.
We're back down.
From there we're going to go into a mountain climber.
Core nice and tighter, we're up.
We're going to do 10 on each.
What we're going to do is my knees are in and I'm going to kick them to where my knees are out.
Going through that, try not to rotate side to side.
The last one, we're going to go up.
It's going to be next to my hand.
We're going to drop down.
Dropping it down, nice, big stretch.
Again, five on each side, right here.
If you feel like that's relatively easy, go through two sets of it.
The last one, I'm going to try to get my foot up as much as I can, sit back into it.
Again, a nice, big stretch.
You can work on keeping that back leg straight.
Get that awesome hip flexor.
There we go.
Really quick and easy.
Yet, going to get it in those hips, work a nice range of motion and flexibility, but also get that heart rate up.
