Bridge with Single Leg Raise

  1. Lay on the floor with your feet flat and knees bent.

Lunge Side Lift

Squat to Plank Jack

  1. Begin in a regular squatting position.
  2. In one fluid motion, drop your hands to the floor as you kick your legs backwards and outwards, ending in a wide-legged plank position.
  3. Jump and bring your feet to meet your hands. Stand up and repeat.
