Treat yourself to a full body workout with tips from Fuel Athletics trainer Hawari Farihin, writes Aznim Ruhana Md Yusup

1. Grasshoppers
This exercise works the entire body, strengthening the legs, shoulders and upper chest. It’s also a great cardio workout when done quickly.

Start by getting your body in the plank position, with your face down and hands directly under your shoulders. Then swing your right leg outwards, bringing the knee to your elbow. Swing it back and repeat for the left leg. Do this 10 times.

2. Bicycle
The bicycle crunch is great for building abdominal strength. Start by lying down on the floor with your hands behind your head. Then raise your right arm, move forward and pull your left leg towards you. Rotate your body slightly and have the raised elbow touch the knee.

To continue, go back to the starting position and repeat for left arm and right leg. Repeat another nine times.

3. Skier
Get dancing with this workout. Start in a standing position with your feet together, and move your left leg wide behind you towards the right.

Then quickly move the left leg to the front, and get your right leg wide behind you towards the left. Make sure you are slightly squatting as you switch from left to right and use your hands to maintain balance.

Do this 10 times, and repeat all the exercises in order for four rounds.
