Repeat it few times.
  2. Triceps Push-Ups: Get in the plank position (hands on the ground, below your shoulders), hold your body straight, lower your chest towards the ground by bending your elbows close to the body. Push back up to start. Initially, some people find it hard to complete a push up, they can complete it by placing their knees on the ground this will make it easier. Gradually you can increase the difficulty level by raising your feet on a raised surface like stairs.
  3. Skaters: Start by getting in a semi-squat position. Leap to one side to come to ground on your left foot. Instantly push off in the reverse direction and land on right foot. Ensure to perform this constantly.
  4. Plank crawl: To start plank crawl, get in push-up position. Lower yourself towards the ground by bringing down one arm at a time into a plank position on your forearms. Keep your elbows just below your shoulders. Get back into starting push up position by pushing back up one arm at a time. Interchange the arm you started with and sustain a straight body all through the movement. You can decrease the difficulty level by lowering your knees to the ground.
  5. Walking lunge: Keep your arms to the side while standing with feet shoulder-width apart. Move forward with your left foot and lower your right knee in the direction of the ground. Bend your knees to form a right angle. Make sure your left knee remains over your left ankle and don’t let your knee go beyond your toes. Stand up to balance on left foot and change feet.
  6. Single leg balance stick: Balance on your left foot with your right foot behind you. Bend forwards, maintaining a straight body position and raise your right heel towards the ceiling. Keep a slight bend in your standing knee or you may lock your knee. If you have difficulty balancing, then concentrate on something lying ahead of you, you can also hold your back leg for support.
  7. Bird dog: Start by acquiring a position of downward dog (on both hands and legs), make sure your knees are directly beneath your hips and hands beneath shoulders. Gradually extend your left leg behind you and reach your left arm forward to form a straight line. Maintain your balance without bending your back. Come back to the initial pose and do again on the other side.
  8. Side plank hip drops: Start by stretching out on your left side with your left elbow directly placed beneath your shoulder. Keep your feet on the ground, lift hips off the ground, and offer support to your body with your forearm. Sustain the position for some time, gradually bring down your right hip on to the ground, and do again
  9. Bridge: Lie down on your back with your arms close to you. Bend your knees but keep your feet flat on the ground. Lift your hips in a straight line from your shoulders to knees, while maintaining a straight back. Remain in the position for few moments and bring down your hips gradually back to the ground and go over.
  10. Superwoman back extension: Lie down on your stomach and bring your arms frontward (as if you are flying). Softly, lift your upper body and legs off the ground while keeping your head straight. Hold for some time and do again.
