You might feel like a dog lifting up its leg to take a wiz – hence the name, fire hydrants. Get in table top position (on your hands and knees) with a neutral spine. Lift your right leg directly towards the ceiling as it maintains its natural bend from being in table top. Repeat that motion and lower down slowly to create a burning sensation in the side of your rear. Toning up your gluts will wipe away that muffin top before you know it.
Tabletop Side Kicks
Stay put in table top, and this will be an easy transition. Instead of lifting your leg upwards, you cross it behind your leg still in table top form, almost tucking your knee under your planted leg’s knee, tapping your toe on the ground. Then, with your core engaged, slowly kick out this leg parallel towards the floor and to the side.
