Pick Up Sticks
What you'll need: A mat
Targets: Abs, butt, hips, and quads
- Stand with feet hip-width apart, arms by sides.
- Lunge forward with right leg, bending right knee 90 degrees, left leg extended behind you, and reach right hand to ground beside right foot.
- Return to start, switch sides and repeat. MAKE IT HARDER: Jump up between lunges and switch legs in midair to alternate sides or take shorter steps and lunge faster.
- Do 10 reps per leg.
Trainer's tip: To help support your lower back, keep your core engaged as you reach toward the mat.
