You will also begin our unique lower body and core workout. We call this group of exercises Speed and Agility. The benefits of these exercises are a slim waist line, better posture, great looking legs and improved athleticism. They are designed to develop Dynamic Strength and Flexibility in your lower abdominals, hip flexors, glutes and hamstrings. For this reason you should treat these exercises different than "THE BIG FOUR". Do between 10-20 repetitions of the lower body exercises while focusing specifically on your form and posture.
