Quarter Dog

Why it works: The Quarter Dog may look like a resting pose, but it's a killer move for your upper body.

Get more out of it: To work your upper body and core more, practice hopping into Forearm Stand Split. Starting in the Quarter Dog, gaze forward between your hands, step both feet together, lift your right leg into the air, and practice kicking up. It's OK if you can't stay balanced — just hopping up will effectively work your muscles.
