Day 6 “how to” videos:

Hip Extension with Stability Ball – Lye on your back (supine) with your heels on a stability ball hands flat on the floor at your sides. Digging your heels into the ball lift your hips off the ground until they are in line with your torso and legs. Hold for a count and return to the starting position.

Bird Dog – You can do this exercises by just holding the position and coming back to the start or touching your elbow to your knee as you see in the video.

Kickback with Resistance Band –  Think of a standing donkey kick just with a resistance band to make it a little more challenging.

Dumbbell Clocker Shoulder Raise (Around the World)

Forearm Planks – Keep working with the basic plank from your knees until you are strong enough to come up onto your feet then hold and repeat!
