The exercises that are included in the program are the following:
1. COSSACK SQUAT
To do it: Stand with feet much wider than shoulder-width apart, arms relaxed by sides. Squat as deep as possible to the left, while turning right toes up, flexing right foot (right leg remains straight and the torso leans slightly forward to maintain balance). Extend arms straight out from shoulders. Return to the starting position and perform on the opposite side to complete 1 rep.
Do 2 to 4 sets of 8 to 12 reps
2. CRISS-CROSS POWER JACKS
To do it: Stand with feet together and take a deep breath in. As you exhale, jump feet out wide and cross arms overhead. From there, scissor legs, crossing left leg in front of right, as left-arm crosses over right at chest level. Immediately repeat, alternating sides each time.
Matthews recommends using this move as part of a circuit, completing the exercise for 30 to 45 seconds before transitioning to the next strength move.
3. INNER-THIGH BLASTER
To do it: Stand your forearms’ distance away from a sturdy chair or countertop, holding on lightly with your right hand. (Or, do the move without something to balance with, as shown.) Step feet hip-distance apart, toes pointed straight ahead. Place a soft, small ball (or similar size pillow) between inner thighs.
With hands-on hip, lift heels, balancing on balls of feet. Bend knees and lower about an inch (imagine back is sliding down an imaginary wall). Press inner thighs into the ball, keeping shoulders stacked over hips, hips stacked over ankles, and core tight.
Raise hips back up, squeezing the ball with inner thighs. Lower an inch to repeat.
Do 30 reps, and then turn around to repeat on the other side.
4. TREE LEAN TO SIDE LUNGE
To do it: Stand tall with feet together and arms overhead. Laterally flex the spine so that arms and shoulders reach left while hips sway right.
Sweep arms up and over, making a half circle down toward the right as the left leg steps out into a side lunge. Land in a deep side lunge with left hand resting on thigh, right hand touching the floor.
Push off the floor and circle arms back overhead to return to lateral lean as left foot returns to right.
Do 10 reps; repeat on the opposite side.
5. FROG BEND
To do it: Lie faceup with legs extended straight over hips, feet flexed, heels together, and toes turned out.
Slowly bend knees out to the sides, and then straighten, using your inner-thigh muscles to control the movement.
Do 3 sets of 12 reps, resting in between each set as needed.
