The Speed Skater With Reach is an excellent plyometric exercise that’ll elevate your heart rate, improve balance, agility, and coordination, but the movement of reaching for your toes also intensifies the activation of your glutes, hamstrings, and quads.
Watch the SPEED SKATER WITH REACH: exercise demonstration video above.
To perform SPEED SKATER WITH REACH:
1. With a hip width stance, slightly bend your knees then bend your elbows at a 90 degree angle while lifting one foot, bending your knee and drawing it behind your other leg with your opposite elbow drawing back to get into a speed skater pose.
2. Take a wide jump laterally to the other side, landing on the leg that was bent, and immediately get back into the speed skater pose.
3. Hold the speed skater position and squat down on one leg to touch the top of your foot with your opposite hand and hold the position for a brief moment.
4. Jump back to the other side and complete the same reach and hold movement.
5. That’s one rep.
