Sideways Running

This move will help increase your agility.

  • Starting with your right foot, run five steps sideways to the right. On the last step, your right foot should "stick" as you first drop your weight into that leg before pushing off with it and stepping out with your left. (When you plant your foot on the last step, your whole foot should be in contact with the ground and slightly angled out in the direction you were heading. Make sure your knee is pointing in the same direction as your toes. Keep your shoulders back and down with your chest up and abs in, and swing your arms to give you momentum.) The timing should feel like "one, two, drop and push, one two, drop and push."
  • Repeat by running to the left side for five steps.
  • Do 20 reps.

Finish the circuit with five minutes of indoor cycling before repeating the entire circuit for a total of three times.
