Total body agility and strength building - This month we wish to highlight four exercises that can be incorporated into any routine regardless of your fitness level. Your frequency, intensity, and duration will define your exercise output, therefore, find a repetition range that is appropriate for your fitness level. Have fun and enjoy challenging yourself with these UNYQE Fitness exercises.

1. Knee to stand - Start in a kneeling position, with one foot forward, keeping the upper body still, and step up to a standing position. Maintaining good posture, then step the front foot back to the starting position

2. Side Lying crossover to forward lunge - Start lying on your side, with your elbow directly under your shoulder. Cross the top leg toward the supporting arm that is in contact with the ground. Drive the front leg into the ground to transfer off the ground. Immediately continue your momentum forward by stepping into a forward lunge. Reverse the pattern by stepping back into the starting position and repeat.

3. Prone inchworm - Lie in a prone position ( Face Down) push your body back into a plank position, walk your hands towards your feet, and then stand up upward. Walk your hands back to a plank position and lower your body back to the ground.

4. Prone stand from wide squat - Start in a prone plank position, hands shoulder width apart, feet hip-width apart. Step your right foot outside of your right hand, immediately followed by left foot outside of left hand . Push body upward into a standing position. Reverse the pattern to descend back to the starting position.
