1. High Donkey Kicks
This variation of the donkey kicks exercise is a little bit harder, but it’s suitable for beginners too. It gives your glutes a good stretch and work your shoulders too.
To make it harder, use a resistance band and try to elevate your foot as high as you can. Here’s how to perform high donkey kicks:
- Start on all fours, with your hands directly below your shoulders.
- Squeeze your glutes and kick one leg backwards as high as you can toward the ceiling.
- Hold there for 1-2 seconds, then slowly return the leg back down.
- Repeat for 20 seconds, then switch sides and perform the same movement with the opposite leg.
