1. The Modified Plank The plank pose is a personal trainer favorite because it is simple enough to perform anywhere, and it works your body’s entire core. It also can help to elongate the spine, strengthen the arms and wrists, and increase balance. Hold the pose for 15 seconds, and then release. Repeat 2x.

3. Side-Lying Leg Lifts Side-lying leg lifts are easy for anyone to perform and target the hips and outer thighs. Repeat 10-15 times on each side.

4. Assisted Squats This beginner move is a modified version of traditional squats and targets the muscles of the lower body, including the thighs, hips, and butt.
