Lift your hips toward the ceiling. Hold, and then lower back down.

To make this exercise more difficult, extend one leg at the top of the lift and keep your thighs parallel.
Then lower back slowly to the floor.
Repeat this exercise for 30 seconds; switch sides and do the move for another 30 seconds on the other leg.
Stand with your feet hip-width apart and hold a 5-pound dumbbell in each hand. If you do not have a dumbbell, find 2 filled water bottles or something similar of equal weight.
Bend your right leg and raise it about three inches off the floor.
Extend both arms in front of you at chest height and your palms facing down.
Keep your arms straight and raise your left arm above your head and hold for 3 counts, then return to chest height.
