EXTENDED TA BREATH
Set Up: Begin on your knees, feet straight behind you. Place your hand on the ground about two feet in front of your knees, slightly in front of your head and shoulders.
Arch your back, pushing your belly to the floor. Then, bring your stomach inward, pushing your back up so that your body looks like a bridge. Push your stomach back toward the floor, arching again.
Do 15 reps.
ROTATING PLANK KICK THROUGH
Set Up: Start in a piked push up position with your toes on the ground, booty in the air and arms straight under your shoulders.
Lift your left arm and bring it up to the back of your head. Twist your body so that your stomach is facing your left and kick your right leg out to the left as well, tapping your right heel on the left side of your mat. Keep your abs tight as you bring your leg back to the starting position. Repeat with your right arm and left leg.
One tap with each leg counts as one rep- do 15!
SINGLE ROW BOAT
Set Up: lay flat on your back on a mat, heels on the floor and arms by your sides.
Raise your head and shoulder up off the mat, using your ab muscles to pull your body. Bend your left knee up toward your chest, bringing the top half of your body up toward your leg too. Lower your leg back down to the ground and your torso back to the starting position. Repeat with your right leg. Keeping your abs tight and using your stomach muscles to pull your body (not your arms!) is important!
Do 15 reps, with one rep as a bend of the left leg and the right leg together.
Set Up: Being in a modified pushup position with your forearms flat on the ground.
Use your toes and stomach muscles to push your body forward, reaching your chin toward your fingertips. Rock back to the starting position. As you rock back and forth, keep your stomach muscles pulled in and tight- your body should be in a straight line the whole time!
Do 15 rocks then take a break!
OBLIQUE TWIST WITH WEIGHT
Set Up: Sit on a mat legs straight in front of you. Bend your keens up slightly keeping your heels on the ground. Raise a small dumbbell over your head, straightening your arms.
Lean straight back so that your body is at a 45 degree angle with the floor. Sit back up, twisting your body to the right as you go. Center your body again as you lower back down to the 45 degree angle starting position. Be sure not to arch your back or move your lower body to really ensure those abs are doing all the work!
Repeat 15 times then switch so your body is twisting to the left and do 15 more reps.
PLANK KNEE PULLS
Set Up: Begin in a V position with your feet flat on the floor, hands flat on the floor, shoulder width apart, about four feet in front of your feet. Your head should be in line with your shoulders, looking toward your feet. Legs straight, abs tight!
Bend your right knee, bringing it all the way up to go in between your arms. As your knee comes forward, lower your booty and rock your body forward, shifting your weight to your arms. Bring your leg back to the starting position and push your booty back up in the air. Repeat on your left leg.
Do 15 reps, one rep being one left and one right knee bend.
