Push ups with renegade row
Begin in a high-plank position, placing both hands shoulder-width apart. Then, bend your elbows and lower your body toward the ground, keeping your elbows at about a 45-degree angle. Push back up to a high-plank position while driving on arm up towards your side in a rowing motion. Repeat on each arm.
Resistance band plank jacks
Begin in a high-plank position, placing a resistance band above your knees (optional) and both hands shoulder-width apart. Use your abs to stabilize this position. Then, like a jumping jack, hop your legs wide and then back together.
From a standing position, squat down and place your hands on the floor in front of you. Then, kick both feet out behind you so you are now in a high-plank position. Do one push up. Next, bring your legs forward to go back into a squatting position, and jump up while raising your arms above your head.
Squat to a push out
Stand with your feet between hip-width and shoulder-width apart. Initiate the squat from the hips, not the knees. As you squat, push your arms out in front of you. Bring your arms back to your chest when you return to a standing position.
Oblique crunch (with a jump switch)
Place your feet shoulder-width apart. Drive your right knee up, squeezing your obliques. Then, jump to switch. Repeat on the left side.
Plank to toe touch
In a high-plank position, use your abs to lift your hips up. Reach down towards your toes, opposite arm to leg.
Glute bridge with a hip abduction
Lie face-up on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Place a resistance band (optional) above your knees. Then, raise your hips until your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees, and keeping tension in the resistance band, perform a hip abduction at the top.
Single-leg crunch to three-legged downward dog (right side)
Start in a downward-facing dog position. Then, drive one leg up. On the way back to your starting position, drive your leg towards your chest, engaging your core.
Single leg crunch to downward dog (left side)
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Initiate the squat from the hips, not the knees, then engage your core and jump up explosively. When you land, lower your body back into the squat position, and repeat.
Lie flat on your back. Then, contract your abs to lift your shoulders and upper back off the floor, and simultaneously lift your feet and bring your knees toward your elbows. Squeeze your abs at the top of the movement, and then return to the starting position.
Alternating reverse lunges
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, and take a large step backward. Lower your hips so that your thigh (front leg) becomes parallel to the floor. Your other knee should be bent at a 90-degree angle. Return to your starting position and repeat on the other leg.
