Women's Health Walking Workouts
Stand with feet hip-width apart with a towel under your right foot, hands on hips. Simultaneously, sit back, bending your left knee as close to 90 degrees as possible while keeping your knee behind toes, and slide your right leg out to the side, keeping your knee straight. Slide back to start and stand. That’s one rep. Do 10, then switch sides.
MAKE IT EASIER
Only bend your knee halfway (to about 45 degrees) as you lower and slide your foot out just 30 to 60cm.
MAKE IT HARDER
Stay low throughout all the reps, keeping your stationary leg bent as you straighten your opposite leg, sliding out to the side and bending to return to centre. Simultaneously hold the second towel by the ends at chest level, arms extended, hands pulling away from each other.
