Pi­lox­ing Tri­cep Ex­ten­sion While per­form­ing this ex­er­cise, you must bend at your waist so that your body is on a slight for­ward an­gle. Your chin should be in line with your neck.

Ad­di­tion­ally, you must raise one leg and pulse the leg at the sim­i­lar time as you work your glute, core and arms.

Speed Twist Be­gin the ex­er­cise with a speed bag mo­tion in which you need to cir­cle your hands around each other at shoul­der height on the right side.
