Get Strong, Get Low!

Take your strength to the next level by changing your body position – get low!  Isolate your hips and core with low kneeling split stance exercises.
Low Kneeling Exercises | Joy, Fitness, & Style
Warm up:  Find neutral through your hips while on a BOSU or on a platform with a rolled up towel for your knee.  With your right knee centered on the BOSU, dig your right foot into the floor and squeeze your right glute. If you feel any pain in your knee, stand up in a staggered stance instead. Open your arms with your palms up. Reach arms overhead then lower arms and twist.

Warm up stretches

Grab a set of dumbbells and perform bicep to overhead presses (left photos below), back flyes (2nd photos from left below), kneeling chest flyes (3rd photos) and tricep kickbacks (4th photos).
