1. Goblet Squats with K-Well Kettlesoft:

3. Planks with BLACKROLL Gym Ball:
Place your forearms on the gym ball and extend your legs behind you, holding a plank position with your body forming a straight line from head to heels. Gym ball planks strengthen the core and improve stability, crucial for maintaining good posture.
