Begin in a standing position in the middle of your workout mat. Take a wide step to your right, shifting your weight to your right foot. Bring your left leg and right arm straight out behind you while you touch your left hand to the ground next to your right foot. Then coming back to a standing position, take a wide step out to your left, shifting your weight to your left foot. Bring your right leg and left arm out behind you and touch your right hand to the ground beside your left foot.
Repeat this move for 45 seconds. Rest 15 seconds.
Double Crab Toe Touches
Start by sitting on the floor with your feet in front of you and your hands behind you. Lift your hips and engage your core until your torso is almost parallel to the ground. Now lift your right hand and left leg at the same time -- first reaching to touch your knee, then straightening your leg and reaching to touch your toe. Repeat this on the other side touching your left hand to your right knee and then toe.
Repeat this exercise for 45 seconds. Rest 15 seconds.
Lie on your back with your knees bent, feet planted on the floor, arms at your sides. Press your palms into the mat and straighten one leg, lifting your foot in the air. Engage your core and squeeze your glutes as you lift your hips off the ground keeping your leg elevated and in line with your torso. Lower your leg and hips down to their original position. Then repeat with the other leg.
Alternate sides on this move and repeat for 45 seconds. Rest 15 seconds.
Donkey Pulse with Extension
From a table top position on your hands and knees with your back straight, raise one leg until your thigh is parallel to the ground, keeping the knee bent at a 45 degree angle. Pulse here and then extend your leg out and behind you, lifting as high as you can and opening up your hip flexors. Then return your leg to the starting position.
Do this move on one side for 45 seconds. Rest 15 seconds. Continue on the other side for 45 seconds. Rest 15 seconds.
Side Crunches with Leg Extensions
Lie on your right side with your legs extended, right arm out in front of you and palm down. Rest your left hand behind your head. Begin by raising your left leg up in the air while you lift your head and torso towards your leg. Use your right hand for stability, but don’t use it to hold your weight or push yourself up! Squeeze your obliques as you reach the top of this exercise and then lower back down into your starting position.
Repeat on your right side for 45 seconds. Rest 15 seconds. Then do the same on your left side for 45 seconds. Rest 15 seconds.
With your feet shoulder width apart and your toes pointed slightly outward, bend your knees and tuck your tailbone drawing your butt down towards your heels. From here you can either press your palms together in front of your chest or plant your hands on the ground between your feet. Now raise your tailbone up to the sky and let your head hang down in a forward fold. Return to your squatting position to complete the rep.
Continue this move for 45 seconds. Rest 15 seconds.
Lie face down on the ground with your arms and legs outstretched. Holding your arms and legs straight reach your hands and feet in the air as high as you can, lifting your chest and engaging your back muscles. Release and lower down to the ground.
Repeat for 45 seconds. Rest for 15 seconds.
Begin standing with your feet shoulder width apart. Take a big step backward with your right leg, lowering your right knee until your left thigh is parallel to the ground in a lunge. Then as you raise up out of the lunge kick your right foot forward as high as you can.
Repeat this combo for 45 seconds. Rest for 15 seconds. Do the same on the left side for 45 second. Rest 15 seconds.
Walk-Out Planks with Pushups
Standing with your feet shoulder width apart, fold forward and touch the floor. Begin walking your hands away from your feet until your body is straight in a plank position. Bend your elbows, lower your chest down to the ground, and push back up into plank to complete a pushup. Then walk your hands backwards toward your feet and return to a standing position.
Repeat this sequence for 45 seconds. Rest 15 seconds.
Bicycle Crunches with Toe Touches
Start by laying on the floor with your knees bent, feet planted. Put your hands behind your head and lift your right knee up towards your chest while you raise your shoulders off the ground -- twist your torso as you bring your left elbow to meet your right knee. Lower back down and then repeat this motion instead straightening your leg and touching your left fingers to your right toes instead.
Continue on your right side for 45 seconds. Rest 15 seconds. Then do your left side for 45 seconds.
Keeping feet about hip width apart and toes pointed forward, sit your hips back and bend your knees into a squat until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Maintain your squat position and walk your feet two steps to the right. Push up into standing position, squeezing your quads. Return to the squat position and walk two steps to the left. Again push up into standing position.
Squat walk back and forth for 45 seconds. Rest 15 seconds.
