Low Plank Hip Dips
Position your body into a low plank position with your back straight, abs tight and elbows directly under your shoulders. Squeeze your abs super tight and lower your right hips down to the ground while twisting your body. Keep both elbows down on the ground and keep the butt low. Now switch and lower the left hip to the ground. Alternate hip dips and do 3 sets of 20.
Side Plank Twists
Get into the side plank position with the left forearm, elbow and foot resting on the ground. Keeping the hips high, make sure your body is in a straight line (like a plank of wood). Now raise your right arm and reach your right arm under the left, touch the ground behind your body, then scoop the arm back up. Keep the hips high and abs very tight. Repeat the side plank twists 20 times on each side.
Grab one weight and sit down on the ground with your legs bent and heels down. Now tilt your body back and bring the weight to your chest. Hold your abs tight and make sure your back is always straight, never hunched. Now twist your upper body from side to side and try to bring the elbow down to the ground. Alternate sides and do 3 rounds of 20.
