4 MOVES IN 14-MINUTES TO PREPARE FOR THE SF HALF MARATHON
This year I’ve been lucky enough to get an entry into the Nike Women’s Half Marathon! The race is on October 20th and takes runners all throughout SF, passing several trademark spots. It’s only fitting to use some of those landmarks as inspiration for this workout. To make it even better, this one is completely focused on the booty — and it’s only 4 moves that can be conquered in just 14 minutes! Don’t forget to stretch before and after.

Note: Each rep, alternate which foot is brought inward

A Lay down on your back and rest both feet on a surface about 2-feet high. B Lift your pelvis, while engaging your glutes, until your body forms a straight line torso to knee.
