5 Great Total Body Exercises.

Plank

This is a killer move for your core, legs, and upper body. When holding elbow plank, be sure your shoulders are stacked over your elbows and your body is in one straight line.

  • Start on the floor, resting on your forearms and knees.
  • Step your feet out one at a time, coming into a plank position.
  • Contract your abs to prevent your booty from sticking up or sinking. Your spine should be parallel to the floor, with your abs pulling toward the ceiling.
  • Hold 30 seconds, and work your way up to one minute as you get stronger.

Push-Up

Balance your weight on your toes and palms

  • Your hands should be a comfortable distance apart, probably just beyond shoulder-width.
  • Your body should form a straight line from your ankles to your head.
  • Squeeze your glutes and brace your abdominals, and keep them that way for the duration of the exercise.
  • Slowly lower yourself to the floor, pause, and push yourself back up. Repeat a few hundred times.

Side Plank- Hip Abductor

  • Lie on one side, legs straight and upper body propped on one forearm, elbow under shoulder.
  • Contract your abs and raise your hips until your body is straight from ankles to head.
  • Lift your top leg. Pause and lower. Repeat for full set. Turn to other side and repeat.

Squat Jump

  • Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Start by doing a regular squat, then engage your core and jump up explosively.
  • When you land, lower your body back into the squat position to complete one rep. Land as quietly as possible, which requires control.
  • Do two to three sets of 10 reps.

The Best of the Best
Burpees

  • Squat with your hands on the ground in front of you.
  • Jump your feet back to plank (or push up) position.
  • Jump your feet back under you to the squat position.
  • Immediately jump up as high as you can with your hands straight over your head. Repeat.
  • Note: if you want to make the move even more difficult, you can perform a push up when you are in the plank position.
