Reverse Crunch

How to: Lie on the floor with your legs up and slightly bent, hands at your sides with palms faced down. Brace your torso by contracting your abs.

Plank-Up

How to: Place your forearms on the floor, elbows under your shoulders, and extend your legs behind you. Keeping your back flat, straighten your right arm and place your palm flat on the floor, directly under your shoulder, then repeat with your left arm so you’re in a pushup position. Reverse the movement, lowering back onto your right forearm and then onto your left, to return to start. That’s one rep. Perform as many reps as possible in 45 seconds. Take one minute of rest before repeating the circuit.
