Plank - Keep your head up, abdominal muscles tight, and your backside even with your shoulders and heels. See how long you can go!!
Side Plank - Try this on one side, then the other. You should be resting on your forearm with your feet either staggered or stacked. Engage your core and lift your hips off the floor.
Flutter Kicks - Lay on your back with your hands under your tailbone. Lift your heels off the groung one at a time. Big or Little Flutter Kicks.
Inch Worms - Bend over and walk your hands in front of you until you are in high plank position. Then inch your way back to the starting position.
Push Ups - One of the best strength exercises that you can do. If it gets too difficult, drop to your knees and get a few more good ones!
Sit Ups - Cross your hands and touch your opposite shoulder. Sit up until your elbows touch your knees.
Chair Squats - sit to the edge of the chair, then stand back up. Make sure you keep good balance and try not to use your hands to stand up!
Glute / Hamstring Raises or Marching - Lay on your back with your heels close to your back side. Raise your hips up into the air, hold and slowly lower back down. Next try to March like the girl in the GIF.
