* Read and follow each of the exercise descriptions for proper form and safety.
Stand as tall as you can with your feet spread shoulder-width apart.
Bend at the hips to lower your body as far as you can by pushing your hips back and bending your knees. Pause for 1-2 seconds, then push yourself back up to the starting position.
Continue for the prescribed number of repetitions before moving on to the next exercise.
2. Jumping jacks
Stand with your feet together and your hands down by your side.
In one motion, jump your feet out to the side and raise your arms above your head.
Immediately reverse that motion by jumping back to the starting position.
Get down on the ground and place your hands on the floor under your shoulders. Extend your legs behind you.
Your body should form a straight line from head to heels. Keeping your back flat, bend your elbows to lower your chest towards the floor. Pause for 1-2 seconds then push back up to the start. Do 10-15 reps
4. Reverse Lunges
Start by standing with your feet hip-shoulder width apart and hands at your hips.
Take a large step backward with your right foot into a reverse lunge position. Lower your body until your right knee almost touches the floor.
Returning to the standing position by pressing your left heel into the floor and bringing your right leg forward. That's one rep. Do 10-15 reps, then switch sides and repeat.
Position yourself up onto a bench, chair or step as long as it is stable and secured to take your body weight. Hands should be shoulder width apart fingers facing forward and elbows pointing backwards with a slight bend in the elbows.
Extend your legs out in front of you with a slight bend in the knees.
Slowly lower your body until your shoulder joints are below your elbows. Push back up until your elbows are nearly straight. Do not lock the elbows.
Start by lying face down on the floor and prop yourself up on your forearms and toes, with your body forming a straight line.
Now contract your abs and your glutes as tightly as you can and hold this position for 30-60 seconds.
