These three moves will get your whole body in shape. Here's what we learned from Megan Hoel with Penrose St. Francis:

Pilates 100
Lie on your back, and make sure your back is completely flat on the mat. Place the resistance band at the arch of your shoe, and hold onto the handles or onto the band with your hands. Raise your feet straight above you with the band, and lower your legs as low as you can without arching your back. Place both arms on each side and make sure they remain straight. Palms should be facing the floor and pulse your arms up and down slightly. Try to perform 100 pulses. If you cannot do 100 pulses, try to as many pulses as you can and work your way up to 100 pulses.

Squat
Start in a standing position with the feet shoulder width apart, and place the resistance bands under the arches of your feet. Bend your arms up (like you are in a bicep curl position) while you are holding the band and make sure your palms are facing forward. Perform a squat; bend the legs down like you are about to sit in a chair and come back up to the starting position. Repeat 10-15 times.

Bosu Ball Reverse Grip Flye
Place the resistance band underneath the flat part of the BOSU. Make sure the band is evenly placed. Place your head and neck on the BOSU and lift your hips up. Have arms completely straight and your palms face you. Lower the arms and raise them up over your head. Avoid bending the arms while performing this exercise.
