The first exercise

GRASSHOPPERSA�a�� a whole-body exercise. First do a 3-minute general warm-up and some dynamic stretching. Next, get into the starting push-up position, put your feet a little closer to your hands and bend the knees (the body is still supported only by the toes and hands). Take your right leg under your core to the left, close to your left hand. Go back to the starting position, and take your left leg to the right hand. Keep a nice pace, and as you master the movement you can speed up a little. Do 4 series of grasshoppers, 30 seconds each with 15-second breaks in between.

Herea��s a short video tutorial by SalthePTC a�� thanks a lot!

The second exercise

LYING FROG KICKSA�a�� a very nice exercise to tone our inner thighs, glutes, and abs at the same time! Lie on your back, the arms on the floor along the torso. cYou can also put your hands under your glutes, if you like. The legs, straight in knees, above the ground (preferably 45 degrees, so that your lower abs work best). Keep your heels together, but direct your toes out. Bend your knees, keep them as wide as you can, the heels still together, and push back. Keep going for 30 seconds, take a short break, and go for another 30.

Wea��ve got a helpful video tutorial by Howcast a�� many thanks!

Make sure your abs are braced. See the video to control the level of your feet.
