In & Out Abs – 1– Knees into your chest 2– Bring you legs straight out and hold for 2-3 seconds.
Pulsing Lifted Lunge – 1-Lift one leg onto the chair 2-Bend both knee, lowering towards the ground 3-Pulse at the bottom 30X *The closer you can get you lifted knee to the ground the harder it gets.
Hip Raises . 1-Put your heels on the edge of the chair. 2-Bring your knees over your hips 3-Lift your butt as high as you can and squeeze for 2-3 seconds 4-Repeat 30X * You could do this with your feet on the floor, but elevating your legs will give you more of a challenge. Don’t be afraid to challenge yourself!
Chair Push Up – If 30 push ups is too hard, I would suggest only doing 15. *To challenge yourself even more, try lifting one leg to add some balance and core work.
