CRESCENT LUNGE ROW

First, your starting position should be the downward dog and then you need to lift your leg upward and inhale at the same time. After that, step your left in between your hands into a low lunge while exhaling. From the top of your mat, grab your dumbbells then extend your arms. (A). Your left knee must be kept over your ankle directly. While doing this, inhale and your torso must be hinged forward. As you exhale, pull the dumbbells to your sides, until they’re side-by-side your rib cage. (B). Inhale again then lower your weights and have your arms fully extended. After this, you’ve finally done one rep. Try to do 20 on both legs. After that, reverse the sequence of the movements so the end pose should be the downward dog.

PUSHUP FALLING TRIANGLE

Start from the downward dog again and then carefully shift to a high plank pose. Make sure that your legs and feet are hip-width apart from each other. For this move, you’ll need to set aside your dumbbells to the side of your mat. (A). You’ll need to bend your elbows until it forms a 90-degree angle and you need to inhale while doing so. Then, lower your body into a pushup. (B). Return to the plank and exhale while doing so. Inhale then exhale while threading your right leg under your body. Extend it outward to the left then tap your left hand to your right toes after. (C). Do the sequence of the movement in a reverse, so the plank should be the end position. After that, repeat it on the other side of your body. This makes one rep. You’d need to do four reps and make sure to alternate the sides and sequence of movements.

WEIGHTED TABLETOP GLUTE PRESS

Start with the high plank position. Your hands need to be under your shoulders and your knees must be lowered onto the floor and under your hips. This should look like the tabletop position. Put a dumbbell behind your right knee. (A). Keep your back flat and softly bend your elbows. Your right heel must then be raised upward to the ceiling while your left foot is kept flexed and your knee still bent so the dumbbell is held in place. (B). Lower your back again to the starting position. Congratulations, you finished one rep. Now repeat it 20 times then do the same thing to the other side and do 20 reps again. Be mindful that you’ll need to do two sets.

LOCUST VARIATION

Start with the tabletop position and lie facedown on the mat with your legs extended. Next, bring your hands beside your ears while your elbows are bent outward to the sides. (A). Your neck must be kept long and your shoulders must be relaxed. Try to pull your shoulder blades together and then squeeze your glutes. As you do this, lift both your arms and your legs off the floor. (B). Hold the pose for a bit then return to the starting position. This makes one rep. Ideally, you’ll need to do 15 to 20 reps. Completing two sets is also required.

EAGLE CRUNCH

Sit on your mat and then lie on your back. You’ll need to bend your arms until it forms a 90-degree angle. Your left arm must then be raised over your right one. This must be done in front of your body. Next, your knees must also be bent to form a 90-degree angle. Your right leg must then be placed over your left, which will make your right foot tucked behind your left calf. (A). Exhale then lift your elbows and knees together over your torso while doing so. Take note that your lower back must stay glued to the mat. (B). Lower your body and return to the starting position. This makes one rep. You’ll need to do 20 reps. Make sure to do it on the other side of your body also, which means you’ll need to raise your right are on your left as well as raising your left leg over your right. Do two sets to achieve the best results.
