Targets: Rectus and transversus abdominis, quads, inner thighs, and calves
- Stand facing a wall with legs together, squeezing rolled-up towel between thighs.
- With knees slightly bent, hinge forward at hips to place palms on wall, arms extended, so that back is nearly parallel to floor.
- Squeeze abs and towel as you rise onto toes, then do 20 pulses: Lower hips 1 inch, then raise them 1 inch. Make it harder: Start with knees bent 90 degrees so that hips are closer to knee level, then pulse.
- Do 3 sets.
