This one’s fantastic for your obliques. Rest on your right forearm, elbow bent at 90 degrees. Straighten your legs so that your neck, waist, hips, and legs are aligned, holding your hips above the floor and pressing the right side of your foot into the floor. Lower your hips to the floor, then lift them up towards the ceiling, engaging in a side crunch. Perform 20-25 reps, and repeat on the opposite side.
2. Rock and Raise
Start out lying on your back with your legs straight and your arms behind your head (a mat may help for this one). It may help to actually grab something behind you, like a workout bench or heavy medicine ball. In one smooth and continuous movement, raise your legs, butt, and lower back off the floor, extending your feet towards the ceiling. Hold here for 3 counts, resting all of your weight on your upper back and shoulders. Slowly and in control, lower your legs to starting position. Perform 15-20 reps.
Get into a pushup position, with a slight bend in your elbows and your palms resting against the floor. Your ankles should be close together. Keeping your legs close together throughout, jump slightly off the floor and rotate your knees to the right. Then in one single movement, rotate your knees to the left. That counts as 1 rep. Perform 10-15 reps total.
