Move of the Day: Scorpion Push Up
Works your chest, shoulders, triceps, and abs.
A. Start out in a plank on toes and palms.
B. Push down into a low push-up and bend your elbows out to 90 degrees as you swing hip open.
C. Now return to A.
Do as many as you can! Then switch sides. This is an advanced move, so you can try it on your knees first if you’re just starting out.
Move of the Day: Plank hold single arm row
Targets upper back, lats, shoulders, core, and glutes.
Get into pushup position with your hands gripping a pair of dumbbells; your hands should be slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, and your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart. Keeping your hips parallel to the floor (you’ll need to engage your core and glutes the entire time), bend your right elbow to pull the weight up toward the side of your body. Pause, then slowly return the weight to the floor and repeat with the left arm. That’s one rep. Do 15.
