  • Bend your knees and reach your palms to the floor in front of you.

  • Jump down into plank position on all fours, then lower your body down to a push-up position.

  • Complete the push-up, returning your body to plank position.

Ab Crunch

Crunches are one of the most common exercises for your abdominal muscles. Similar to a sit-up, crunches involve lifting the upper body up off the floor or mat using your core.

How to do Ab Crunches

  • Lay flat on your back and put your hands behind your ear. Bend your knees and firmly place your foot on the concrete. This is your starting spot.

  • Keep your elbows bent, relax your core, and raise your shoulders and upper back off of the board. Keep at the top for a second and then withdraw back down to starting place.
