MMAXOUT Inside leg touch with kettle bell (WindMill)
The kettlebell windmill exercise resembles a toe touch. Stand with your feet about shoulder-width distance apart. Hold the kettlebell in your right hand with your arm extended overhead and your palm facing forward. Relax your left arm down at your left side. Bend over and slide your left arm down your left leg. Keep your legs straight; don’t bend your knees. Look up at the kettlebell as you descend. Keep your back straight and your right arm fully extended.

Cross Over’s step-ups: Use a step or bench which is approximately mid-shin to knee height. Put your left foot on the step, with your right foot on the floor and your arms at your sides. Then push down with your left leg and drive your body upward rapidly, switching support (hopping) from left foot to right foot as your body reaches its maximal vertical height.
With your right foot supporting your body, lower the left foot to the floor rapidly but under control. Repeat this action continuously, back and forth from foot to foot, without pausing at the top or bottom positions.
The crossover develops leg strength, power, and dynamic-balance control (coordination). Cardiovascular benefits of this exercise can be increased by speeding up your stepping cadence or by increasing the height of the step. Step heightening also enhances leg-muscle power and improves mobility of the hip and knee joints.
MMAXOUT SQUAT PRESS
You may need to experiment a bit, using a weight that makes the exercise challenging but achievable. To do the exercise, stand upright with your feet spaced about hip- to shoulder-width apart and your hands supporting the dumbbells in front of your shoulders.

As the weight swings down and back to its original position, allow your knees to bend and your torso to hinge forward

MMAXOUT ONE LEG STEP UPS
From the starting position, put your left foot onto the side of box. Use the muscle of the left leg to bring the right foot powerfully up off the floor. As soon as the left leg is extended bring the right foot back down to the floor. Leave the left foot up on the box and perform an entire set with the left leg in the top position. When you have finished a set with the left leg in the top position, reverse feet and repeat with the right leg in top position
The one leg step-up is a simple and effective leg exercise that strengthens leg muscles while building balance and leg-muscle control.
MMAXOUT DEAD LIFTS
The deadlift is very difficult to master, and as such it is crucial to begin light until you have perfected your form. Pay close attention to your form throughout the motion and perform the lift very slowly.
Stance: Place the barbell at the floor and step forwards until it rests directly at your shins. Grip the bar at shoulder width with an alternated grip: one palm facing up and the other facing down. Keep your knees slightly bent and feet pointing forwards.
Posture: Keep your core tense and your back straight. Stick your hips and rear out and keep your shoulders back and tightened.
The Upward Motion: Basically, just straighten your back and stand up. Grip the bar tight and push with your feet to raise the weight. Raise your shoulders and push your glutes simultaneously. In the lower half of the movement, you should feel your hamstrings and glutes performing most of the work.
When the bar begins to near your waistline it will begin to shift the force to your lower back. Continue straightening until you are completely upright, with the bar resting against your waist-upper thigh region.In this second portion you will need to shift your weight to the heels in order to retain balance and target the hamstrings and back.
The Lowering Motion: Slowly lower the weight to the floor, with the same emphasis on posture and form as in the eccentric portion. Regain your balance and begin again. Do not drop the weight or use momentum to lower it, as this will negate the emphasis of the exercise and may cause injury.
Because the deadlift works so many muscles, particularly your core muscles, it can help reduce lower back pain and improve posture. It is also as great fat burner since you are working so many muscles at once. With all of those muscles getting a workout, you can end up boosting your metabolism as well.
MMAXOUT SQUAT JUMP

Now slowly bend at your elbows and lower your upper body down towards the floor until your arms are at about a 90 degree angle. Be sure to keep your back close to the bench. Once you reach the bottom of the movement, slowly press off with your hands, and push yourself straight back up to the starting position.
