complete the first exercise in the set for the given amount of time, then complete the second exercise for the given amount of time. Rest 30 seconds and then repeat for a total of 3X through. Do the same for the next two sets! See below for exercise descriptions.

flutter kicks: Lie flat on your back on a mat with your arms by your sides and your palms down. Extend your legs fully out with a slight bend in your knees. Lift your head, neck, and shoulders off the floor. Then lift heels about 6 inches off the floor. Make small, rapid up and down scissor-like motions with your legs. The key is to focus on having your midsection do all the work and to keep your abs constantly contracted throughout the exercise.

suitcase sit ups: Lie flat on your back on a mat with arms stretched out straight behind your head, and legs out straight. Simultaneously flex at the hips & curl the abs to raise the legs and torso off the floor. Bend your knees into your chest as you sit up on your butt and extend arms straight in front of your (tapping the floor in front of you by your sides). With control, lower all the way back down to the starting position.

side plank reach under with a hip dip: Come into side plank on your forearm. Extend top arm up towards the sky. Lift hips up as you reach your top hand under your bottom hip (feed through), return back to center, and dip bottom hip down to the ground then back up. Repeat.
