Superman Exercise

  • Start by lying flat on your stomach with your arms extended in front of you.
  • Next, raise your arms and legs off the ground toward the ceiling.
  • When in that position, slightly lift the belly button off the floor so that your abs contract.
  • Hold the position for about three to five seconds, and then lower your arms and legs.
  • Repeat the workout ten times and do four sets.

Couch Dips

  • Sit on the couch with your arms extended at your sides and feet hip-width apart and flat on the floor.
  • Position your hands so the palms are down beside the hips and the fingers are gripping the front of the couch.
  • Push yourself off the couch with your arms extending straight at your sides. The knees should bend at an angle of forty-five degrees and be flat on the floor. For a more advanced motion range, you can fully extend the legs.
  • With your head straight and looking straight ahead, dip to the floor. Make sure that you breathe in while doing this and then come back up. Do ten repetitions and four sets.

Arms Circles

  • Start with your feet shoulder-width apart and arms straight out at shoulder height. Your palms should be facing down.
  • Move your arms in a circular motion forward for fifteen seconds. Move them backward in the same manner for another fifteen seconds. That should count as one set.
  • Rest for a few seconds and repeat the same movements. Do four sets.

Incline Couch Push-Ups

  • Facing the couch, place your hands at the edges and extend your legs straight behind you. The arms should be straight, making sure that your elbows are not locked.
  • Your body should make a straight line. Bend the elbows, and then lower yourself until the chest touches the couch. Like a floor push-up, your elbows should remain perpendicular to the body.
  • Push back up to the starting position. Do four sets of ten repetitions per circuit.

Plank Shoulder Taps

  • Start in a press-up position. Your hands should stretch directly under the shoulders with your feet hip-width apart. When doing this, engage your core.
  • In that position, tap your left shoulder with your right hand and your right shoulder with your left hand.
  • When doing so, make sure your body doesn’t move side to side.
  • Do four sets of fifteen repetitions each.

Plank Row

  • Start in a press-up position with your hands directly under your shoulders. Your hips should be hip-width apart and your back straight.
  • With your glutes engaged and the core tight, stabilize your torso. Lift your right elbow to row and bend it up toward the ceiling and as close to the rib cage as possible.
  • Repeat the movement, alternating your arms. Make sure that you don’t lose your plank stability.
  • Do five to ten reps per arm and repeat for four sets.
