Reverse Flutter Kick

The reverse flutter kick is a great core/lower body exercise. Lay on your stomach then raise one leg (keep it straight) until you feel the burn (aim for 5-10 seconds); that's one rep. Repeat on the other side. This move works the abs, lower back, glutes and hamstrings. Do 3-4 sets of 8-10 alternating reps.

Pros:
  • Works many muscle groups in the core and lower body.
Cons:
  • You need a mat of soft surface otherwise your ribs might get sore.
