Drop 10 Pounds With This Fat-Melting Floor Workout

1. Bicycle Crunch

Bicycle crunches are an excellent floor abs workout. Bicycle crunches are done by lying on your back with your arms behind your head and your hands behind your head. Knees and feet up. Crunch up and touch your opposite knee and elbow. Great if you can touch elbow to knee. If not, come near. Alternate sides until you finish.

2. Bird Dogs

Floor yoga exercises often include bird dogs. Bird dogs start on hands and knees. Fully extend your opposite arm and leg. Start again. Repeat both sides.

3. Downward-dog to Cobra Flow

Going from downward dog to cobra improves core and full-body mobility. It boosts aerobic capacity and fat reduction when done rhythmically. Plank to down-dog to cobra. Push back into downward dog. Bend elbows and lower your chest. Enter cobra. Downward dog again. Keep going.

4. Side-Lying Leg Lifts

Side-lying leg lifts shape and burn stubborn fat in your upper glutes. Keep your bottom hip on the floor if side planking is too hard. Begin side-lying leg lifts in a side plank. Lift your top leg with your toes forward. Slowly resume side plank.


5. Floor Glute Bridge

Glute bridges finish any floor routine. For lower back health, glute growth, and resistant fat loss, this exercise is essential. Start floor glute bridges on your back. Lift your hips with both feet. Return slowly. Keep going.

6. Pushups

Cap your fat-melting floor workout with pushups. Pushups strengthen your shoulders, core, and burn calories. Plank to do pushups. Bend your elbows and squat. Push with both hands to return to the beginning position when your chest approaches one inch off the floor.
