• Plank Pose
    Come into Plank Pose with your hands shoulder-width apart, arms straight, feet hip-width apart, and your heels, ankles, butt, spine, shoulders, neck, and head in one diagonal line. Bend your elbows to lower your body, keeping your elbows hugged into your ribs. Try holding each position (with straight arms and with elbows bend) for 5 seconds and repeat coming up and down for about 12 times. You’ll also feel this in your abs as well as the whole body. Keep focused on your abs so you can keep the entire body in one strong line.
  • Horse Stance
    Stand with your legs wide apart, toes turned out and the inner arches of your feet lifted. Bend your knees and see that they are over the toes, curl your tailbone under. Bring your hands to your thighs. Inhale deeply and, as you exhale, lift your heels of the floor. Inhale, and slowly place the heels back to the floor. Repeat 12 times, making sure that you keep your hips as low as is possible.
  • High Lunge
    From Plank Pose, lift you hips and, with an inhalation, step your right foot forward. Step forward far enough so that your knee can form a right angle. Simultaneously, firm the left thigh and push it up toward the ceiling, holding the left knee straight. Lengthen your torso to the ceiling. Hold for 30 seconds then change the legs; repeat 5 times.
  • Cross Body Crunch
    Lie flat on your back and bend your knees to bring the shins parallel to the floor lifting your feet. Place your hands loosely behind your head. Now curl up and bring your right elbow and shoulder across your body to the left knee while stretching the right leg away from your torso. Exhale as you perform this movement. Try to bring your shoulder up toward your knee rather than just your elbow and remember that the key is to contract the abs as you perform the movement. Continue alternating legs and shoulders for at least 25 repetitions.
  • Cross Back Workout
    Come onto all fours with your wrists underneath your shoulders and your knees underneath your hips. Lift your right arm out in front of you whilst stabilizing your body with your back and abs, then lift your left leg up behind you. Hold for 5 seconds and then change the arm and the leg. Repeat at least 12 times.
