Standing oblique toss
Works your core.
A | Hold a 4- to 8-pound medicine ball and stand several feet away from your partner (for more of a challenge, stand 10 to 15 feet apart) with your left side facing her right side. Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart and turned out slightly and contract your abdominals. Bend your knees slightly, pivot on your right foot, and twist to your left, reaching the ball past your left knee.
B | Then turn back to the right, pivoting on your left foot, and toss the ball to your partner.
C | After your partner catches the ball, she should twist to her right and bring the ball past her right knee, pivoting on her left foot. Then, as she pivots on her right foot and turns back to the left, she’ll throw the ball back to you.
Repeat until each of you has completed 15 tosses. Then switch sides and do another 15 tosses. Repeat the series a total of three times.

Medicine ball sit-up
Works your core.
A | Lie on your back on a yoga mat with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Hold a 4- to 8-pound medicine ball at your chest and ask your partner to stand by your feet, facing you. Keep your feet and buttocks on the floor throughout the exercise.
B | Push your lower back into the floor, and using your abdominals, lift up into a half sitting position. If this is too much for your lower back or your abs, curl into a crunch with just your shoulder blades off the floor.
C | As you lift, throw the ball to your partner. Hold the position as your partner catches the ball and tosses it back to you. Catch the ball and slowly return to the floor.
Repeat for 15 to 20 tosses. Switch positions with your partner and repeat. Do a total of three sets.
