Tricep Dips:

Place your hands on the floor close your hips, fingers facing towards the body. Legs are bent with ankles stacked under knees and thighs lifted off floor. Slowly bend through the elbows pressing into the palms of the hands and making sure you are keeping your chest open by drawing shoulders down the back. Once you have lowered the elbow about 30%, slowly return to starting position. 

Scissors:

Lay flat on your back, engage core by bringing navel to spine, slowly reach right hand towards left toes. Lower left leg and repeat on opposite side. Be mindful to keep belly flat and not bulging during this exercise. If you feel strain in the abs, you can modify this motion by taking the legs from straight to a bend.

Jump Squat:

Same movement as your squat but on your up faze you will spring off your toes and land softly with control back into a squat position.

Bring hands directly under shoulders, hips are lowered and inline with shoulders.

Level two: Legs are stretched out and toes are pressing into the floor.

Push up:

Hands are slightly wider than your plank position and you will slowly lower your chest to the floor. Being mindful not to arch through the lower back or hips. Keep hips low in alignment with your shoulders as you lower.

Toe touches:

Lying flat on your back, raise your legs straight up towards the ceiling. Slowly with control bring your navel into spine and reach your fingers towards your toes. Slowly lower and repeat motion. If straight legs is too much for your belly, bend your knees and have fingers reach towards knees.
