Russian twist: 30 reps

While sitting down, lift your legs off the ground, engage your core and bring your hands together. Twist your body from left to the right, bringing your knuckles to the floor and elbows behind you. Activate your core and obliques and try to keep your back straight.

Tricep push up: 30 reps

Start in a high plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders. As you bend your elbows, keep them tucked into your ribcage and bring your chest to the ground. Press yourself up, activating your chest, triceps, shoulders and core. Make sure to keep your back flat.

Plank jack: 30 reps

This exercise can be performed on your elbows for a challenge or on your hands in a high plank position. Start static and then jump both feet out to the sides and back together. The goal is to keep your body as straight as possible and core engaged.

Reverse lunge: 15 reps each side

Start standing up with dumbbells by your side. Step one foot back into a reverse lunge and try to bring your knee to the floor. Keep your weight in your front heel to activate your glutes. This will also help to keep your balance. Repeat on both sides.

Ground to press: 15 reps

Begin standing with dumbbells by your sides. Squat down as low as you can and then use your momentum stand and press the weights above your head. Do your best to keep your chest up while you squat and engage your core.
