Complete the circuit 3 times for a full workout. 20 Calf Raises
  1. Stand on the edge of a step.
  2. Stand tall with your abdominals pulled in, the balls of your feet firmly planted on the step, and your heels hanging over the edge.
  3. Rest your hands against a wall or a sturdy object for balance.
  4. Raise your heels a few inches above the edge of the step so that you’re on your tiptoes.
  5. Hold the position for a moment, and then lower your heels below the platform, feeling a stretch in your calf muscles.

  1. Lie on your back on an exercise mat on the floor with your legs touching and fully extended and your arms extended outward with palms down.
  2. With your knees slightly bent, raise your legs straight up in the air until your feet are parallel with the floor.
  3. Reach your arms toward your feet, forming a 45 degree angle. Your head should still be on the floor. This is your starting position.
  4. Roll forward as you exhale, lifting your torso off the floor as you try to touch your toes with your fingers.
  5. Inhale as you slowly reverse the motion back to the starting position.
  6. Repeat for a complete set.
