1. Cossack Squat

 

To do it:

  • Stand with feet much wider than shoulder width, arms relaxed by sides.
  • Squat as deep as possible to the left, while turning right toes up, flexing right foot (right leg remains straight and torso leans slightly forward to maintain balance).
  • Extend arms straight out from shoulders.
  • Return to the starting position and perform on the opposite side to complete one rep. Do 2 to 4 sets of 8 to 12 reps.

 

  1. Criss-Cross Power Jacks

 

To do it:

  • Stand with feet together and take a deep breath in.
  • As you exhale, jump feet out wide and cross arms overhead. From there, scissor legs, crossing left leg in front of right, as left arm crosses over right at chest level.
  • Immediately repeat, alternating sides each time.

 

  1. Frog Bend

 

To do it:

 

  • Lie on a floor or a mat with your face up, while your legs are extended straight over hips. Keep your feet flexed, heels together, and toes turned out.
  • Slowly bend your knees out to the sides, and then straighten them back, using your inner-thigh muscles to control the movement.
  • Do 3 sets of 10 reps, while resting in between each set as needed.
