Core Twist

Lie flat on your back with your arms extended away from your body at shoulder-height and your palms flat on the floor. Lift your legs into a tabletop position, keeping your knees and ankles glued together.

Rotate your knees over to the left, keeping both shoulders on the floor. Use your core muscles to bring your knees back to center and lower them onto the opposite side. Continue alternating sides for 8-12 reps.

Boat PoseSit with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. While keeping your chest lifted, spine long, and shoulders rolled down and back, begin to raise your legs into the air with your arms extended in front of you at shoulder height. (Keep your knees bent to make the exercise easier.) Hold for 15 seconds, then release. Repeat 3-5 times.

Side Plank With Rotation

Lie on your left side with your legs straight. Prop yourself up, forming a diagonal line with your body, resting on your left forearm. Place your right hand behind your head. Your left elbow should be directly under your left shoulders and your hips should reach towards the sky.

Keeping your lower body stable, begin to twist your torso, reaching your right elbow towards the floor. Pause, then slowly rotate back to a side plank. Do 8-12 reps, then repeat on the opposite side.

Plank Jacks

Start in the top of a push-up position with your arms straight, core tight, and feet together.

Now, hop your feet out wider than the mat, and then hop your feet back to the starting position. Continue this movement for 30 seconds.

Superman

Lie face-down on a mat with your arms extended on the floor in front of your body, and your legs extended behind you.

Slowly lift your arms, legs, and chest a few inches off the floor. Pause and slowly lower back to the floor. Do 8-12 reps.

Tricep Dip

Sit on a mat in a reverse-tabletop position, with your feet flat on the floor at hip-width distance apart. Your knees should be bent and your hands should be directly below your shoulders, with your fingers pointing towards your heels and your butt lifted off the floor.

Bend at the elbows, lowering your butt towards the mat. Then, push through your palms to straighten your arms. Don’t let your shoulders lift next to your ears, but instead keep them pressing down and back. Do 8-12 reps. If you’re ready to make it more challenging, do the exercise off the seat of a sturdy chair or bench.

Shoulder PressStart standing with your knees slightly bent and feet hip-width apart. Hold a dumbbell in each hand, just above your shoulders, with your palms facing forward.
Straighten your arms to press the weights overhead, then slowly lower, not allowing your upper arms to drop below parallel. Do 8-12 reps. You can also try the exercise keeping your palms facing in towards your body, with elbows pointed forward.

T Push-up

Start in a full plank position with your arms straight and your wrists directly below your shoulders. Keep your spine long and core muscles engaged.

Bend your elbows to lower into a push-up. Pause, then slowly straighten arms. (Drop to your knees to modify the movement.)

Now, lift your left arm toward the ceiling and rotate your body to the left, shifting your weight onto your right hand, creating a “T” while lifting your hips to the sky. Then, slowly reverse the move. Be sure to alternate sides with each rep. Do 8-12 reps on each side.
