Starting position: Lie on your back with your hands over your head.
Step 1: With legs straight, simultaneously raise your torso and legs towards each other.
Step 2: Reach and attempt to touch your toes. Return to starting position. Repeat.
Starting position: Lie face down on the floor with your feet and arms extended as if you were superman flying.
Step 1: Lift your arms and upper body as high off the ground as possible while simultaneously doing the same with your legs.
Step 2: Hold for 1-5 seconds, then return to starting position.

Step 2: Keep lower back pressed to the floor and lower legs to the starting position.
5. Mountain Climbers
Starting position: Get on all fours with your legs extended behind you as if you are in a pushup position.
Step 1: Without changing the posture of your lower back, raise your right knee toward your chest.
Step 2: Return to the starting position and repeat with your left leg in one fluid motion. Repeat rapidly.
Starting position: Lie on your back, knees bent, feet flat on the floor, and hip-width apart.
Step 1: Place your hands behind your head so your thumbs are behind your ears.
Step 2: Curl up and forward so that your head, neck, and shoulder blades lift off of the floor. Hold for a moment at the top of the movement and then lower slowly back down.

Step 1: Lift your body off the ground supported by your forearm and feet, into the side plank position.
