Upright Oblique Twist
If you don't have a mini exercise ball, grab multiple towels (it won't have the same effect but it will give you some resistance to work with)
- Holding a dumbbell in each hand, sit on floor with knees bent, feet flat and ball behind lower back.
- Lift arms to shoulder level in front of you, palms down.

Wood-Chop Crunch
For beginners you can lose the dumbbell, but for the real benefits of the workout you want that added weight!
- Holding a dumbbell in each hand, lie face up on floor with knees bent 90 degrees, and arms out to sides, slightly bent with palms up.
- Keeping arms slightly bent, raise dumbbells to touch above chest.
- Lift head and shoulders off floor and reach dumbbells by right hip; then return to center and lower to start.
- Repeat to left side. Do all reps, alternating sides.

Roman Rotator
Standing ab workouts are essential for getting that toned core that you want, so get off that matt!
- Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent, and lift bent elbows in front of you at shoulder height, palms facing each other.
- Rotate torso and arms together diagonally up toward left.

Toe Tap
You can do this move any time you're sitting down. Try it at work, at home, in the park!
- Sit on edge of bench and place palms behind you on seat, fingers forward.
- Maintaining a neutral spine, lean back slightly and lift legs, knees bent 90 degrees off ground.
- Keeping chest lifted, shoulders back and right knee still, touch ground with left toe, then raise left knee back to start position.
- Switch sides and repeat to complete one rep. Do 10 reps.

Magic Carpet Ride
It's sounds like all fun and games but it actually is a serious workout! Plus, you can even clean your floors while you work out ;)
- Start on an uncarpeted floor in full push-up position, balancing on hands and toes, arms extended, a folded towel underneath feet.
- Contract abs and bring knees in toward chest.
