1. Russian twist
You need to lie down on the floor, with your feet under something that will not move. Then elevate your body with arms extended in front of you. Twist your torso to the right side until your arms are parallel with the floor. Hold it for a second and move back. Repeat it with the opposite side. Do this for 10 times.
Take a kettlebell and hold it with your both hands under your chin. Then step out with your right foot and bend at both knees until they make a 90-degree angle.
Stand back up and bring your left leg forward even to your right leg. Step out with your left leg. Do this 15 times.
3. Rear Leg Raises
Start on your fours with a head looking forward, and the bend of the knees should create a 90-degree angle between the calves and hamstrings. Then extend one leg up and hold the position for several seconds. Repeat it several times, and then switch leg.
4. Reverse Plank with Leg Lift
Sit on the ground with hands behind the hips. Lift your hips up, so your body forms a line. Hold this position and lift one leg. Try to hold the leg several minutes and then bring your body back to the starting position. Do this 10 times. You can make a pause between the repetitions.
5. Barbell Glute Bridge
Sit on the floor and place barbell over your legs. Then roll the bar so that it is directly about your hips. Laing on the floor start by driving through with your heels, extending your hips vertically through the bar. You should extend as far as you can and then reverse in the starting position. Repeat it several times. (5)

Start with your feet shoulder-width apart, and your chest held up and out. Extend your hands straight out in front of you. Then sit back and down like you’re sitting on a chair.
