How to Do:

  • Be seated on a flat bench so that your body is positioned perpendicular to its length.
  • Anchor your body with your bum at all times.
  • Grab the back of the bench, drop your torso backwards, and extend your legs forward until your entire body is straight and parallel to the floor.
  • Simultaneously pull in your lower abs and crunch your upper abs to form a “V” with your quads and stomach.
  • Keep your abs tight, a straight back, and strong posture throughout.
  • Repeat for 15-20 reps.

How to Do:

  • Start in the push-up position. Keeping your hips at the same height as your shoulders.
  • Shuffle your right knee in toward your chest.
  • And then immediately switch it out for your left knee.
  • Think of this move as trying to run in a horizontal position.
  • You want to do these continuously, without rest, as many times as you can while still keeping your hips and shoulders at the same level.
