Abs are the core part of every workout (pun intended). Grab your exercise ball and put your feet together on top of the ball to start with the “hundreds,” a Pilates exercise in which you use your abs to bring your back off the ground in a curved position. Hold this position. To target lower abs, hold the same position with your legs outstretched on the floor instead of on the ball.
To tone your glutes, get into position with your knees and forearms on the floor. Wrap the resistance band around the bottom of your feet and hold the handles in front of you on the floor. Lift and lengthen your right leg straight back so that your body makes one straight line. Lower your right leg and do the same with the left.
Stand up straight with a chair behind you. Bend your right knee back and place the top of your right foot on the seat of the chair. Then bend your left knee to lower yourself into a lunge. Stay in this position to do lunges, and then repeat with your left leg on the chair behind you.
