Stand with your feet hip- width apart, bend your knees, and squat your butt back and down, then jump straight up in the air, and land back down in the squat with knees bent.

9. Straight-Arm Planks with Arm Rows

Get into a push-up position, with feet slightly wider than hip-width. Hold it while you bend right elbow and lift it straight up, bringing hand up by side. Lower hand and repeat on the other side.

10. Supermans

Lie face down, with your arms and legs extended. Slowly lift your arms and legs off the ground as high as you can; keep the neck relaxed and look down at the ground. Hold, then lower.
