This foodspring video shows you how to do knee push-ups correctly. This easy exercise is especially good for beginners, as it puts about 50% less weight on the upper body and arms. The most important thing is to follow the same rules as for classic push-ups. Make sure you keep your back, abs, and glutes tight the whole time.
This foodspring video shows you how to do alternating lunges correctly. Forward lunges are a great workout for your leg muscles. The focus here is on the quads and the glutes. Stand up straight and set your feet hip-width apart. Step one foot to the front and bend your knee, which will lift your back heel off the floor. Make sure your upper body stays upright and doesn’t lean forward. Bring your leg back to your body and start the whole thing again with your other leg.
Foot Tap Crunches
This foodspring video shows you how to do foot tap crunches (a.k.a. heel touch crunches, a.k.a. toe tap crunches) correctly. This variation targets the oblique abs. Start in the crunch position, shoulder blades off the floor. Move from one side to the other, using your right hand to touch your right shoe, then your left hand to touch your left shoe. Your upper body should move towards the side along with each arm.
Front Jumping Jacks
This foodspring video shows you how to do front jumping jacks correctly. Front jumping jacks are also called seal jumping jacks. Start with your arms stretched in front of you at shoulder height. As you jump into the air, spread your feet far apart. Meanwhile, open your arms. As you jump your feet together, bring your arms together in front of you as if you’re going to clap. This is an effective full-body exercise.
