Good Morning America: Sumo Squat Exercise
Work your inner thighs and glutes with the Sumo Squat. Hold a bottle of laundry detergent or water in front of you as you squat up and down. You can also try it with weights, starting with five pounds and working up to heavier weights.
Squat down between your heels, and keep your weight between your arches and heels.
GMA: Alternating Superman Exercise
Harley said that a strong lower back is key to core strength. Try the Alternating Superman exercise. Lay on a yoga mat, raising your left arm and right leg up in the air as if you were flying like Superman. Then switch to your right arm and left leg and repeat.
This is an exercise Harley suggested for Megan Fox after childbirth.
