Lose Your Post-Baby Paunch with Pilates

Get your body back with this fast and effective ballet-Pilates mash-up.

Kneel down on a mat or carpet with your knees hip-distance apart. Keeping your shoulders back and down, pull your abs in, squeeze your butt and raise your arms in front of you to shoul- der height as you lean back a few inches [shown].

Don’t arch your back; you should feel tension in your thighs and butt as you hold this position. If you feel unsteady, keep your arms down at your sides.

Hold for 30 seconds, working up to 1 1/2 minutes. Do 3 times.

Benefits: abs, butt and thighs
