This one just makes me feel badass.

Workout at Home- Hanging Knee Raises
I finally Made it to this point.
Be careful not to come down too hard on your head but be sure to touch it to the ground.

This one is not too bad.
I cut out the part of the video of me falling off the ball. Though, this one is pretty easy.
I decided to use some pullup rings for this which I purchased on Amazon.com. Though, if I did not have them I would have just grabbed the beam. Plus, notice I am using a ladder to place my feet. use whatever you have available.

This is the Air Hump from the convict conditioning workout program (affiliate link). This one is the first in the series to strengthen your back. If you find it pretty easy just keep at it so you can strengthen your back for the next step in the series.

To really burn your abs put your arms straight out to your sides like a ‘T’.
This is 45 Degree Bent Leg Raises For Abs from the convict conditioning workout program. This one is a little harder then the bent leg raises I displayed last time because the angle of the legs makes it harder.
