    Donna Wilkinson: This next exercise is going to be a glute exercise to really stretch out and work your hip area. So, very simply exercise. We are pulling upon the hand, quads and on the ankles. So, we are just squad pull that ankle up, really feel the stretch coming through the side of your glute. Get that ankle up, pull it all the way to you keep that standing leg nice and straight. Really get that to stretch across. Dont be shy in pulling. Really pull that leg up nice and tight.

    Keep that core nice and tight, you dont want to be moving all over the place. To get that pull, you should feel going all the way down the side of your legs. Good. So, now weve gotten front, back, hips loosened up. Lets finish this workout up.
