Movements included in this workout
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, toes pointed slightly out. While keeping your back straight and your chest out, perform a squat by lowering your hips until your thighs are roughly parallel to the ground. After a brief pause, push back up with your legs to the starting position and repeat.
Double Knee Lifts
Sit on the edge of the seat with your knees bent and your feet flat. Grasp the armrests and lean back slightly. Pull your knees toward your chest as you contract your abs, try to not pull with your arms. Slowly lower your feet until they are just above the floor but not touching. For maximum results use slow and controlled movements, let your abs do all the work and try not to rock back and forth.
Stand upright. Take a large step backward with your left foot. Lower your hips so that your right thigh is parallel to the floor with your right knee positioned directly over your ankle. Your left knee should be bent at a 90-degree angle with the weight resting on the ball of your foot. Return to a standing position by pressing your right heel into the floor and bringing your left leg forward. Repeat the same movement with the other leg.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, arms by your sides. Bend your knees and place your hands on the floor. One at a time, extend your legs out behind you and then lower your entire body to the ground while keeping your elbows bent. Push up with your arms and bring your legs forward one at a time in a controlled motion and then raise your body to a standing position.
