Lie on your back with a flat lower back.  Hip hinge upwards with straight arms and legs and try to fold your body.  The back should not bend, instead stay straight as only your hip is hinging. 

Mountain Climber

Start in a push up position.

Bring your knee up to your chest while keeping your back straight and alternate sides.  Do not push your hip up or let your hip sag toward the floor. 

Full Body Sit Up

Raise your feet off the ground.  Hip hinge and bring your torso backwards while you extend your legs.  Feet do not touch the ground.


Return to the starting position by hinging in the hip, not jerking the motion or rounding the back. 

Kettle Bell Raises

Grab a secure grip on a kettle bell and lie down with your legs extended upwards.


Raise the torso and kettle bell towards the feet while hip hinging.  The back should not be rounded. 

Plank Jacks

Go in a push up position.


Jump to spread the legs, land the feet and return.


Keep the back straight and brace the core.

Russian Twists

Sit and raise the feet off the floor.

Gently twist and bring a bell or kettle bell to the floor on your side, raise it back and lower it to the other side.  Repeat as you keep your back straight.

Windshield Wipers

Hold a med ball or kettle bell above you with straight arms and raise the legs straight to the ceiling.

Gently lower your straight legs towards the floor to your side and return.  Brace the core and rotate the hip as you do the movement.  Try to keep the weight in place and do not counterbalance it.  Instead, let your core do the work.

Hip Drops

Go in a plank position.  Gently drop the hip from side to side while keeping the body straight.  


Do not sag your hip or lower back.

Side Plank Variations

Go in a side plank position and adjust as needed.

Always keep the body straight and do not sag the hip.

Kettle Bell Crunch Press

Grab a kettle bell and hold it on your chest with both hands.

As you hip hinge upwards, you do not bend your back or neck.  

Extend your arms forward towards your knees and use the kettle bell as a counterweight.  Once you raise the upper back off the ground, start raising the weight towards the ceiling.

Remember, do not bend the back or neck.
