Remember to bring your knee to your elbow, not your elbow to your knee. Warm up your core! Do for 30 seconds.

3) Bird Dogs w/Side Reach- Start on your hands and knee with you hands directly beneath your shoulders, and you knees directly beneath your hips. Your back should be in a neutral position with your belly button drawn in slightly to stabilize your core. While balancing on left hand and right knee, take a deep breath in and lift your right hand and left leg. When arm and leg are level with your body reach them out to the side as far as you can. Your hips should stay level and back straight. Exhale and lower right hand and left leg. Repeat on same side, following your breath, for 15 repetitions. Then do the other side.

4) Hover w/Toe Taps-Start on your belly with your elbows directly beneath your shoulders, chest lifted high, and your toes curled under. Lift your body off the floor so you form a straight line from your heels to the top of your head. Draw your bellybutton in slightly to stabilize your core. Do alternating toe taps as you Hover. Take long slow breaths. If you need to make the Hover easier, keep your knees on the floor. Hold for 1 minute.

Inhale, pull your arms straight back, lift your chest and squeeze your shoulder blades together. Exhale and reach forward, keep your arms off the floor. Repeat sequence. Keep your chin tucked under so your neck stays in alignment with the rest of your spine. Exhale down. Remember, your back is part of your core! Do 20 slow repetitions.
