1. Push-up-: This is my all time favorite exercise. Many people do it incorrectly. Head should remain in alignment with the spine, core engaged, thigh and glute muscles strong during the entire exercise. Start on your knees and advance to toes only when you gain strength in the exercise.
2. Pull-up: This is such a challenging exercise and one of the best ways to measure upper body strength. I’ve been practicing these for quite some time and can finally do them unassisted “oh yeah!” but they still kick my butt!! This targets the back and can be done assisted with a partner or machine.
3. Wall sit-A challenging isometric exercise for the quads, glutes and calves. Knees lined up over the ankles, shoulders over the hips. Great for developing strength and endurance in the lower body.
4. Plank– One of the best exercises to improve core strength and stability.
