Back muscles. Lie down flat on the floor face down. Place your hands on your back, and slowly get up as far as you can. Breathe out when you get up, and breathe in when you lie down again. Keep your eyes on the floor. We do this exercise 20 times. 

Stomach muscles. After the last exercise, we turn around and lie on our backs face upwards. Grab your partner and take place opposite him. Take a ball and throw it at the moment you clench both stomach muscles and get up. If this goes well, we increase the tempo 

The upper leg combo consists of 3 exercises that can be done in sequence. Pairs are formed, and you do three exercises with your own pair.

3 minute squats, bend legs as if you sit down. Buttocks to the back, back straight. Slower lower (preferably in 90 degrees) and come back up again. keep hands before body. Knees must not move past the toes. When coming up, keep tension on the legs. In the lowest position, the ball is played back and forth to the partner 

-2x2 minute Lunges, step with leg forward in 90 degree angle. Slowly bend your knees and come back up. Keep back straight and slowly lower so you can feel your buttocks.  When you are in the lowest position, throw the ball to the opposite player in the same position. 2 minutes left leg, and 2 minutes the right leg.

- 4 minute Steppen,   4 minutes Stepping,   place benches opposite each other and put 1 foot on the bench and back. Each time the same foot. Keep up for 2 minutes. Then change legs. Up and down...the last minute you jump on the bench with two feet at the same time. Throw the ball to the opposite player and he throws it back. If the one is on the bench to throw the ball, the other is on the ground and vice versa.
