Exercises to perform in rotation
Start with your shoulders raised from the floor and both your hands on your forehead. Your feet should be slightly raised of the floor. Bend your knees and hips and bend your trunk. Your body and knees should meet somewhere in the middle, and then lower both your upper body and lower body back to the floor.
Star crump push up
Start with your feet on the floor and hands shoulder width apart. Jump your hands and feet off the floor and widen your arms and legs and land with your arms bent wider then shoulder width and with your chest to the floor. Your feet should also be wider then shoulder width apart. Perform another jump and return your hands to shoulder width and feet to hip width apart.
Side lunge jumps
Your feet should be wider then shoulder width apart when you lunge down by bending your knees. Once you reach as low as you can jump up and land with your feet together.
Start in the plank position and raise one of your legs off the floor and into the air. Rotate your hips and trunk so that the raised leg moves closer toward the floor until it touches. Once it has touched reverse the motion and repeat with the other leg.
Find a wall to lean against and then bend your knees till you are at 90 degrees. You have to stand in that position for the required time.
Ab workout #7
Perform each of the exercises shown in the table below one after the other. You are going to perform either 3 to 4 circuits (sets) for this workout. After each set rest before performing the next circuit.
