  1. Do hip raises

    Lay with your back on the floor, your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Raise your buttocks off the floor, and hold this position for five seconds. Lower your buttocks down to the floor, and repeat this exercise for a total of 10 repetitions.

  2. Perform side leg raises

    Lie on your side with your legs parallel to the floor. Raise your leg up as high as you can, and hold it for five seconds before returning to the starting position. Do 10 repetitions, then repeat with the other leg.

  3. Do lunges

    Stand with your feet a hip-width apart, then step forward with your right leg, and bend your knee at a 90 degree angle. Repeat this motion 10 times, then switch legs.

  4. Lift your body with side planks

    Lie on your right side with your legs straight. Use your left forearm and the outside edge of your foot for support, and lift your body off the floor. Hold this position for up to one minute. Lie on your left side, and repeat the exercise.
