- Warrior III – This is a yoga position that tests your balance, tones your legs, and strengthens your core.
How to do Warrior III:
Stand with the feet together, and lift up the left leg with a pointed toe, putting your body weight onto the standing, right leg. Continue to lift your leg and drop the head and torso so they form a straight horizontal line from head to toe with the arms at your sides. Engage your core and make sure the left thigh, hip, and toes are aligned. Remain facing down and keep your back as straight as possible. Ensure your right knee doesn’t lock and center the weight on the middle of the foot. Hold 5 breaths and then slowly return to standing.
- Low-belly leg reach – This move targets your six-pack and corset muscles.
How to do Low-belly leg reach:
Lie face up with knees bent to 90 degrees, hands behind head, and abs contracted. Keeping knees stacked over hips, lift shoulders and crunch up; inhale and hold for 3-5 seconds. Exhale and extend legs to 45 degrees; hold for 3-5 seconds while squeezing lower belly.
- Leg Extension Crunches – This move blasts fat in hard-to-reach areas like the lower-belly pooch.
How to do the Leg Extension Crunches:
Sit with hands on the floor behind you, palms down and fingers toward butt. Lean back on sitting bones, tighten abs and raise both legs off the floor. Bend knees and crunch legs in toward body; extend legs, then raise them as high as you can. Lower legs toward floor.
- Caterpillar Walk – This move will tone up your entire upper body.
How to do the Caterpillar Walk:
Stand with feet together. Bend over, bringing hands to the floor, then slowly walk hands forward to come into the push-up position with hands in line with shoulders; do one push-up. Keeping hands planted, walk feet toward them and return to standing. Keep your core tight throughout the move.
- Scale pose – Strengthens the core and arms, as well as the pelvic floor, which helps you to have a better posture.
How to do the Scale pose:
Sit in a comfortable cross-legged position with hands on a mat next to your hips. Tighten your pelvic floor, push into your hands, and lift your entire lower body off the mat. Hold for 3 breaths, and then lower back down. This is a challenging move, so if you can’t lift your whole lower half, keep your feet on the floor and just left your butt.
