4. LONG ARM CRUNCH
1. Start lying down with knees bent, feet flat on the floor. Straighten your arms back behind you, lightly clasping hands behind you.
2. Engage your abs and lift your shoulder blades off the floor, reaching up toward the ceiling. Slowly lower back to the floor to return to start. Repeat for 30 seconds.
5. SIDE PLANK
1. Start lying on your side, elbow directly underneath your shoulder and palm flat on the floor. Stack your feet, then lift hips up so your body forms a straight line. Hold for 30 seconds, switch sides, repeat.
Make it harder: After you’re up in the straight line, lower your hips until they’re just slightly above the floor. Quickly lift hips so you return back to a straight line. Repeat for 30 seconds, exhaling on the lift up and inhaling on the way down.
