Air Squats

Place your feet shoulder width apart while keeping your chest up and abdominals braced. Begin the movement by swinging your arms up towards your shoulders, while bending your knees and drive your hips back like you’re sitting in a chair. When your upper thighs are parallel with the ground, hold for a second, then return your hips to the starting position.

Alternating Curtsy Lunge

Bring your hands together at chest height and position your feet at hip-width. Starting with the right foot, step forward and across your left foot. Simultaneously, bend the left knee and drop it towards the ground. Stop when the front right knee is parallel to the ground, push off with the ground with your right foot and return to the starting position.

Bear Crawls

Place your knees below your hips and your hands below your shoulders, raise your hips up, extend your legs and arms. Keep the head in a neutral position. Move the right hand forward as you move your left foot forward. Then alternate to the left hand and right foot. Don’t forget to brace your core.

Bench Flutter Kicks

Lie face down on a bench with your hips on the edge of the bench. Fully extend your legs and raise your feet up from the floor so that they’re in line with your body. Place your arms on top of the bench, use them to hold on to the front edge of the bench, squeeze your glutes and straighten your legs. To do the exercise, raise the left leg higher than the right leg and alternate.

Bodyweight Side Steps / Lateral Lunges

Stand tall with a tight core and make sure your feet are shoulder-width apart. Bring your hands together for balance. Step to the left, leaving your right foot in place. Bend you left knee and pause once the upper left thigh is parallel to the ground. Your right leg should be straight. Push off the ground to return to the starting point and repeat on the right side.
