Exercise explanations: 

1. Mountain Climbers

This exercise works the stomach, shoulders and arms. To do a climber, make sure that your feet and hands are in line with your knees, hips and shoulders. Bring your feet up towards your hands and count one climber from when your foot is at hand height. Alternate legs and each side will count as one rep.

2. Jumping Jacks

Many people know jumping jacks as a classical cardio exercise. Nevertheless, you should not underestimate them, as your back, glutes and legs get a great workout.

The benefits of jumping jacks are often underestimated. They’re effective in getting your heart rate up and ideally suited to train both aerobic as well as anaerobic endurance and to increase calorie consumption.

In the starting position, you open your feet shoulder width apart, then merge them with a slight jump while simultaneously raising your arms so that your hands will touch behind your head.

Make sure to keep your head fully upright, with your gaze directed forward. In the starting position, your hands touch your thighs each time.

3. Crunches

To do them, lie flat on the floor with your lower back pressed to the ground (pull your belly button in to target your deep abs). Keep your shoulders off the ground at all times. Put your hands next to your head and lift your shoulders towards your knees. Be sure not to pull on your neck.

4. High side plank crunch

Depending on which side, begin with one arm on the floor, and your feet on top of each other. Then lower your hip down so it touches the floor, then lift your hips up as your arm reaches up to the ceiling. Repeat on the other side.

5. Sphinx Push-Up

Begin by lying with your arms at a 90-degree angle and legs extended out behind you so that your knees, hips and shoulders and aligned. Push yourself up so that your arms are extended and then lower yourself back down onto your elbows.

6. Plank Knees-to-Chest

Star by getting into the plank position, with your legs extended behind you and your knees hips and shoulders are all aligned. Then bring one leg forward so that your thing touches your belly and the repeat on each side.

7. Supermen

Lie face down on the floor with your legs straight and arms extended in front of you. Lift your chest, shoulders and elbows off the ground and pull your arms behind your back until your hands touch and then all the way back around so your hands touch in front of you. Supermen may look easy, but you will quickly wear out.
