Olympic Speedskater Allison Baver's Lower-Body Workout-2

Lower-Back Booster
This exercise targets the muscles in your low back, hips, glutes, and hamstrings.
 
How to do it: Stand with your hands on your hips and knees slightly bent (about 45 degrees). Without changing the bend in your knees, bend at your hips and lower your torso until it's almost parallel to the floor. Pause, then raise your torso back to the starting position. Repeat until you complete 20 reps.

BONUS: 30-Minute Interval Cardio Workout on Skates
1. Warm up for 10 minutes by skating at a fast pace with 3 easy, 10-second bursts of speed.
2. Alternate between 35 seconds of complete rest and 25 seconds of skating as fast as you can. Repeat this 35/25 pattern 20 times total.
3. Cool down with 10 minutes of easy skating.
