Upside-down pendulum

A. Stand with feet wider than hip-width apart and knees slightly bent. Hold a 3- to 5-pound dumbbell between both hands, and extend your arms toward the ceiling.

B. With head between arms, bend to the left as far as possible, keeping hips and shoulders square. At the last moment, rotate toward floor, then rotate back to forward-facing position and return to arms overhead. Repeat on other side, moving smoothly (like a pendulum).

*Do 10 reps per side.



Standing oblique crunch

>Stand with feet slightly wider than hip-width apart, with your weight on your right leg. Stretch your left hand up and overhead to the right so you feel a stretch in your left side waist (aka your oblique).

Crunch your torso to the left, bringing your left knee up and left elbow down toward each other as if trying to crack a nut between your ribs. Return to previous position.

*Do 12–15 reps, then switch sides and repeat.

Warrior III balance crunch

A. Start with feet together. Extend arms and slowly tilt forward at the waist, lifting left leg so it and your upper body are parallel to the floor and your arms are by your ears.

B. Bend elbows to bring the weight in toward your chest. At the same time, bring left knee in toward your chest so elbows and knee meet at the midline. Return to previous position.

*Do 12–15 reps, then switch sides and repeat.
