Training the core with integrated movements is a really holistic way to train the core, and this exercise progression is a great way to do it. Perform an elbow balance. Take one leg down and hold pressing down through the shoulder, bracing, and lifting from the rib cage underneath. To progress, come up onto both feet. So it makes it a longer lever and less stable. As a further progression, come all the way up onto your hand, balance, reach the hand overhead, and then lift the leg. You can hold that for about 30 seconds, take a break, and make sure you do the other side.
