“This low-impact mat workout has a lower body focus that will help to strengthen and tone your glutes and hamstrings in three key positions,” Colquhoun says. It’s suitable for people of all fitness levels. Plus, you don’t need any equipment (though if you have a yoga mat or towel, use it to cushion against the floor).
