While new fitness trends come all the time, you can always choose to stick with the classic and proven exercises that are especially effective. These exercises are also a great place to start if you’re a beginner or haven’t worked out in a long time.
Take a pair of dumbbells. Stand on one foot and lift the other leg a bit behind you, bending the knee. As you bend forward at the hips, lower the upper body as far as you can. Lift the leg more until it’s parallel to the floor. Switch the legs and repeat.
You can never go wrong with planks. They work the core muscles and make you stronger and more stable for all the other exercises. A side plank is done by laying on the side with straight knees. If you’re laying on your left side, raise your upper body and hold the left elbow and forearm on the mat. Raise the hips, forming a straight line from ankles to shoulders. Lift your right arm straight above your body. Hold for 30 seconds and switch sides.
Push-up is basically a moving plank and one of the best exercises if you want to train your whole body. If you can’t do classic push-ups with your palms and feet on the floor, try modifying the exercise by keeping your knees on the floor and one foot crossed over the other.
