A great basic core stability exercise that’s easy to do and targets the abdominal, low back, glutes (butt), hips, hamstrings and pelvic floor muscles. (Phew, did you get all that down?)
How to do it:
Lie on your back on a mat with knees bent at 90 degrees and palms face down. Contract your abdominals and glutes (butt muscles!), while raising your hips so they’re aligned with your knees. Push through your heels. Hold for 3 seconds and then slowly lower yourself to the floor. Breathe out with the motion, or when your hips are up in the air. Keep your back in a neutral position. Progress to holding for ten seconds and using one leg at a time.
