Exercises

Warm-Up

Before jumping into the exercises do a few basic warm-up exercises. You can start by performing a cardio (for e.g. running/ jogging on the spot), then do a little stretching, jumping in a spot, no-saying-arms etc. You can also throw in another warming up exercise.

Slowly bend forwards and let your upper body be parallel to the floor, your hands still straight by your side. Now slowly bring your right hand to touch the left foot, while twisting your body to the right. Hold for one second then return to the previous form. Now repeat the same process with the other hand and feet. Repeat 5 times and do a set of 3.
