One of the best total-body exercises out there, the push-up engages your upper body, core and lower body, all at the same time. Adding a balance element that further challenges your body will make every rep that much tougher.
What to do: Get into a push-up position on the floor with your hands just wider than your shoulders. Bend your arms to lower your chest towards the floor; at the same time, bend your left leg out to the side, trying to touch your knee to your left elbow. Reverse to return to the start; on your next rep, perform the motion with your right leg. Continue for three sets of 10 to 12 reps.
