Exercise + Blood Flow + Oxygenation to cells + Fight Free Radicals = Stronger Immune System

If you do not have customized workouts or if you do not have home equipment, no worries.

All you need to do the exercises below is the floor!

In the remainder of this email, I wanted to provide a few easy exercises that you can do at home if you are unable to workout otherwise.

Calvin and Alyssa have done a great job in showcasing some movements from easy to advanced.

1. Upper Abs

Begin laying on your back, with your hands behind your head (but not holding your head).

  1. Put your legs in the air with knees bent at a 90 degree angle, ensure that your low back is flat on the floor.
  2. Keep your eyes towards the ceiling, and use your core to pull your shoulders up off the floor.
  3. Crunch up so that your shoulders lift towards the ceiling while keeping your low back flat on the floor.
  4. Return to starting position and repeat.

2. Lower Abs 

Begin laying on your back, with your hands behind your head (but not holding your head).

  1. Put your legs in the air with knees bent at a 90 degree angle, ensure that your low back is flat on the floor.
  2. Extend one leg at a time, so that the leg is completely straight and lower it towards the floor. Just before touching the floor, return to the starting position. 
  3. Alternate sides, focusing on keeping the low back flat on the floor the entire time. Perform this exercise slowly.
  4. Continue alternating 20 reps on each side, rest, and repeat 3 times.
  5. Advanced: extend both legs at the same time, lowering them to the floor at the same time. Keep your back flat on the floor the entire time.

3. Cross-Over Crunch

Begin laying on your back, with your hands behind your head (but not holding your head). 

  1. Put your legs in the air with knees bent at a 90 degree angle, ensure that your low back is flat on the floor.
  2. Lift your shoulders off the floor, engage your core and twist to meet your opposite elbow with opposite knee.
  3. Alternate sides in a twisting motion, return back to the starting position between each rep. 
  4. Modified: Keep the leg that isn’t meeting your elbow bent and lower it towards the floor, striking your heel before returning to the starting position.
  5. Advanced: Fully extend the leg that isn’t meeting your elbow.
