Exercise #3: 20 x Figure Eight Lunges
This variation on the lunge involves more twisting to tone the abs. As you sink into a lunge on one knee, hold out your arms and twist them down to the side of your front leg.
As you step back into your starting position, pull your arms diagonally back across your body and raise them above your head. When you switch feet, switch the direction of your arms, making a figure eight pattern.
Exercise #4: 20 x Jack In and Out
Jumping jacks just got harder. Imagine your traditional jumping jack, but when your arms and legs are splayed out, you’re in a squatting position with a wide stance.
Jumping out of the squat and clapping your hands over your head finishes the move.
Exercise #5: 10 x Cross-Body Climbers
This one is simple if you know how to do a mountain climber. From plank position, simply pull each knee up to your chest, one by one, kind of like you’re running in place horizontally.
This exercise ramps up the movement because instead of keeping your feet placed evenly in the middle of your body while they’re extended, you’ll actually swing them out about 45 degrees to the side on each side, targeting the obliques.
