Next, raise your right arm and reach your right arm to the left, touch the ground behind your body, then scoop the arm back up. Keep the hips high and abs very tight.
Repeat 20 times on each side.
Take one weight ,sit down with your legs bent and heels down,next, tilt your body back, bring the weight to your chest and hold your abs tight and your back straight. Now twist your upper body from side to side and try to bring the elbow down to the ground.
Do 3 rounds of 20 in both sides.
Stand straight up with your arms down and dumbbells in your hands, to reach down and touch the sides of your kneecaps. Keep your back straight and chest high, don’t bend forward or back.
Do 3 sets of 20 and every time you lower the right and left side counts as 1 rep.
