One-arm Modified Mountain Climber
Bend knees and place left hand on the floor, directly in line with your shoulder. Bring your right foot forward, knee to elbow, extending your left leg back. Keep your upper body still while you switch leg positions and allow your arm to move back and forth naturally, as you would if were running. Do 15 reps, then switch sides.
Push-up with Alternating Arm and Leg Raise
Start in a push-up position with your feet hip-width distance apart. Perform a push-up and on your way back up, raise one arm and the opposite leg so they are parallel to the ground. Drop down into another push-up, then as you rise, lift opposite leg and arm until parallel to the ground. Do 10 total push-ups.
Leg Extension with Knee to Elbow
Start in a downward dog position with hips elevated and hands out in front of you, shoulder-width apart. Lift right leg up and back, squeezing your glutes, then move body forward, bringing your right knee to your right elbow. Straighten leg and return to the downward dog position and repeat movement, getting 10 reps on each side.
Stand in a wide stance with both feet facing forward. Jump left leg out and bend opposite knee to come into a side lunge. At the same time, bring right hand down to touch the ground. Use your left foot to drive yourself back up and repeat on other side, with left hand touching the floor. Do 20 reps (each hand touch = 1 rep).
Side Plank Openers
Start in a side plank position with your left hand on the floor directly beneath your left shoulder, forming a diagonal line from head to feet. Stagger your feet for a bit more stability and balance. Allow your right hand to rest on your head. Bring your right elbow down toward the ground until it is inline with your opposite elbow and your face is looking down at the ground. Open back up to the starting position and repeat 10 reps on each side.
