Cardio Butt Kicker Exercise

Warm Up Your Whole Body With This Quick, Dance-Style Move

Warm up for your next kickass workout (pun intended) with a butt-kicking full-body move.

In Equinox's Best Butt Ever, trainer Caroline Jordan calls this move "the '90s," since it's reminiscent of a popular step-aerobics move of yesteryear. This twisted version of a butt kicker uses your arms, legs, and core to get the whole body warm while getting your heart rate up.

  • Start standing with your feet hip-width distance apart.
  • Swinging your right arm across your chest, kick your right heel toward the left side of your butt. Return to standing.
  • Swing your left arm across your chest while kicking your left heel toward the right side of your butt. This completes one rep.
  • Keep your core tight and continue in a fluid motion for 30 to 60 seconds.
