  • Twist Toe Touches

    Start out with your feet shoulder-width apart, knees straight and hands on your hips.

    Twist and touch your right fingers to your left toes, then straighten, and touch your left fingers to your right toes.

    Complete three sets of 24 (12 each twist)

  • Planking

    To get your standard plank on, lie down on your stomach and keep your legs straight.

    Then gradually lift up with the help of your toes and your hands.

    At this point, it looks kind of like you're doing a push up. If you can't hold yourself on your arms, you can brace with your forearms instead.

    You need to hold the position for at least 10 seconds, but if you can go longer, have at it!

    Just make sure that your stomach is pulled in and your back is as straight as possible.

  • Twist Crunches

    Lie flat on your back, hands behind your head and knees bent.

    "Crunch” yourself up, twisting slightly so your left elbow touches your right knee, then lower yourself back to the ground.

    Crunch again, this #time with your right elbow touching your left knee.
    Repeat so you do 24 crunches, 3 times.

  • Leg Raises

    Lie flat on your back with your arms at your sides.

    Lift both legs off the ground, keeping them straight.

    Keep them about 6 inches off the ground and hold for 30 seconds (or as close to 30 seconds as you can) then slowly lower them.

  • Incline Crunches

    Sit on an incline crunch bench, with your toes at the “top.”

    Lie flat on your back, then slowly “crunch” up til you're about half-way sitting.

    Slowly lower yourself back down.
    Do three sets of 12.

    Don't cheat and use your neck muscles, either!

  • Reverse Crunches

    Sit on the incline crunch bench.

    feet up, then slowly lower yourself back, but only half-way... then sit all the way up again.

    Do three sets of 12

    It's a lot harder than it sounds but if you do this exercise several times every week, you'll start to see huge results

  • Mountain Climbers

    You start out in the same position used for a standard push up.

    Once there, pull your right knee in toward your chest, with your foot still resting on the floor.

    Then you want to jump up and, while you're in the air, switch your feet, so that when you resume the position, your left knee is against your chest and your right leg is switched out behind you.

    Repeat this as quickly but as safely as you can for about a minute.

  • Forward Lunges

    You start out standing and then step forward into the typical lunge formation.

    You can step out using your right foot or your left foot but either way, keep the opposite glute contracted.

    Just step forward into the next lunge without losing your position, and start out with about 10 reps for each leg.

  • Deadlifts

    You'll need two free weights or weighted barbells, placed on the floor in front of either foot.

    Stand at your full height with your feet placed shoulder width apart. Keep your back, arms, and legs streight as you bend down and grasp your weights.

    Moving slowly, pick up the weights as you return to your straight, standing position.

    Hold the pose for a three count before lowering your weights again.
    Then, repeat about five times.
