*hello darlings = lay on your back with legs at 6 inches high off the deck. Spread legs wide and then back together. That is one rep.
Advanced athletes can scale up and double reps and use a weight vest for exercises (not on the run).
**kick up/kick out is exactly like it sounds. Kick up with your foot then put back down – then kick out with your foot and then put down.

*Endurance component – run 5k or ruck 5k if needed.
