- Equipment: Body weight, mat (optional, for cushioning)
- Type of Workout: Strength training (toning) & flexibility
- Muscles Worked: Core (abs, obliques, hips, lower back)
- Fitness Level: Beginning to advanced; since this workout has few transitions, it may also be suitable for individuals with limited mobility.

- Safety Precautions: A mat will help cushion your body while lying on the floor. Since this video will work your muscles to fatigue, rest at least 1-2 days before doing additional abdominal/core exercises.
