Turn-and-burn: Work your core, shoulders and back with this move.

Place your left hand on the bench, facing the right side and place one foot in front of the other. This is known as a 'staggered stance'. Reach up with your right hand, then bring it down to the bench and square your body off. Bring your right knee to your left wrist, then open up your right leg and bring it back down. Repeat for one minute and then switch to the opposite side.

The hot seat: Strengthen your core, quads, hamstrings and glutes.

With your hands behind your head and your elbows wide, sit down on the bench and stand up. Sit down again, bring your right leg out, flexing your foot and driving your right heal forward. Stand up using only your left leg and then sit down again. Alternate between single leg and alternate squats, changing leg each time. Continue for one minute. This firms your thighs and increases your heart rate.
