V-Ups- 10 reps
This exercise challenges your core, abs, back, and flexibility. Keep your legs straight as you lift them up, and at the same time raise your upper body off of the floor and reach in front of you. Squeeze your abdominal muscles as you reach and then slowly lower yourself back down to the starting position to finish the first repetition.
Russian Twists- 20 Reps (each side)
This exercise targets your obliques! Sit on the ground with your knees bent and your heels about a foot from your butt. Engage your core and twist to the left.

Start the exercise by moving your left knee straight up and across your body to the right armpit area while keeping your abs engaged. Move your left leg back to the starting position and repeat with your right leg. Alternate your leg movements until you have completed all repetitions.
Army Up & Down Plank- 10 Reps (each side)
This plank will target your abdominal muscles as well as strengthen your triceps and shoulders. Begin in plank position on your forearms, palms facing down. Walk your left hand in, placing it under your shoulder and pressing your body up. Walk your right hand in so that you end up in a full plank position with both arms straight. Quickly lower your left elbow down to the floor, and then your right, so you're back in your elbow plank.
Donkey Kicks- 20 Reps (each side)
Time to lift your butt with these donkey kicks! Begin on your hands and knees, with your abdominal muscles drawn in towards your spine.

Remember.. this exercise is all about the squeeze! Ensure you engage your glutes to obtain the best results.
Squat with Front Kick - 10 Reps (each side)
Stand with feet wider than shoulders holding onto your sandbag directly infront of you. Squat until thighs are parallel to the floor. Shift weight to left foot as you kick your right leg to the front. Return to starting position, squat and repeat, this time kicking opposite leg!
