Build muscle to get stronger and leaner, and you’ll naturally burn more calories throughout the day. Hooray for that!

Twist and Toss
A. Lie on your back on a stability ball with your feet securely on the ground. Holding a medicine ball or rubber playground ball, tighten your abs and twist to the right, then come back to the center.

B. With your hands directly above the center of your chest, toss the ball in the air and catch it. Twist to left, return to center, and toss again; that’s 1 rep. Do 10 reps.
