How To Do: Kick Through (video)

This is a great exercise for the core, mainly the obliques, that you can add many variations to. Just make to put your leg as far as you can, and use your core to pull your leg back. Here is how to it:

1) Start in a push-up position

2) Lift one of your legs off the ground

3) Bring it up, and extend it out across your body

4) Let your torso rotate to the side your leg is extending to

5) Use your obliques to help rotate back  to starting position

6) Extend the leg to the same side, or switch legs

Here is an example:


To help make it easier try doing it on an incline. For a little more of a challenge try doing a push-up as you extend your leg out, or do a burpee and at the bottom do a kick through on both sides, then back up. Give it a try, and let me know what you think of it!
