Then this is the moves you should learn


Prisoner Squat

Stand tall with your hands behind your head and your elbows back. Sit back at your hips and bend your knees until your thighs are at least parallel to the floor. Then press back up to a standing position. Performing squat exercises is a great way to improve your leg strength.Besides the obvious strength benefits for your glutes, hamstring and quadriceps, prisoner squats also help to realign your shoulder blades.


Dumbbell Swing

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Grab a dumbbell with both hands with an overhand grip. Swing it between your legs as you bend at the hips and knees, as if you're about to hike it to a quarterback. Then swing it up to shoulder height as you stand. The dumbbell swing is an excellent exercise that generates power from the hamstrings and hip flexors.




Pushup-Position Plank

Assume the starting position of a pushup, with your arms straight. Keep your head in line with your body and squeeze your abs and glutes.The plank is a great exercise for working towards a flat stomach and getting your core in shape but it can become a little boring just sitting there and holding the position for however long you can. Adding the push up into the exercise brings in the chest and tricep muscles and takes your mental focus off your stomach and abdominals even though they are getting the same workout.
