1. Knee Tucks on Bench
Find a workout bench and balance against it with your forearms and your legs extended out behind you. Your toes should be balanced against the floor and your legs straight. Look forward so you don’t strain your neck. Lift your right foot off the floor and bring your right knee up into your torso, bending at the knee. Hold here for one count, return to starting, and repeat with opposite leg. Keep alternating between legs until you reach muscle fatigue.
