3. Corkscrew:

Now before you give up just because of the name, this routine is actually pretty awesome as it involves you using the core of your stomach muscles in movement. It also helps to strengthen your arms, neck and shoulders.

How To Do:

  • Lay flat on your back with arms at your side.
  • Straighten your legs, squeeze them together and slowly lift them towards your head.
  • Be sure that your shoulders, arms, and head lie completely flat on the floor.
  • Do not lift them as you lift your legs, and your body and legs should be at about a 45 degree angle.
  • Slowly roll your spine, leaning your legs slightly to the right. Make sure your legs are squeezed together.
  • Move your legs back to the center without putting them on the floor.
  • Make the same lean to the left.
  • Continue going from side to side. Complete 10 reps, three sets, inhaling slowly and freezing for two seconds on each side.

4. Hip Switch:

How to do:

  • From your last curtsey kick, lower your right leg slightly below hip height and reach it long towards the floor.
  • Inhale, then use your abs to rotate your leg, hips and top of foot toward the floor.
  • Exhale to turn the hips and glutes towards the sky, really squeezing the butt, as you curl the weights toward your shoulders for a biceps curl.
  • The trick to making this exercise super effective is not allowing the right leg and shoulders to move too much—and really squeeze the glutes.

5. Scissor:

How to do:

  • Laying face up, lift one leg up while the other is outstretched and level with the floor.
  • Try to lift your leg as high as possible without lifting your back.
  • Lift the leg slowly 10 times, then repeat with the other leg.

6. Lateral Kick:

How to do:

  • For this position, you will need to lay on your side, with your elbow bent to help your back stay straight.
  • Move the legs straight up from the hips; this helps maintain balance and protect the lumbar region.
  • Try not to move the hips or the back- the only thing you will move is the leg, completely outstretched.
