10. Russian Twist

Imagine an exercise that requires that you move quickly while sitting on the floor, with your knees bent and elevated, while moving side-to-side. Sounds impossible, right? Well, it won't be for you. Not with practice, at least.

Here's how it's done:

Sitting on the floor, knees slightly bent, heels on the floor. Lean back slightly to engage your abs and rotate to the left, touching your fingertips to the floor. Rotate to the right, again touching fingertips to the floor, quickly alternating back and forth. Once you have the exercise down, make it more challenging by lifting your feet off the floor. Once that becomes easy, amp it up and add a medicine ball in the mix.
