Variety is always good. Share a core set.<br><br>
Start in a pushup position.<br>
Bring right knee under your chest.<br>
Twist knee to the left and back.<br>
Return to pushup position.<br>
Repeat for left leg.

I've got a few good ones here are two.<br><br>
Instead of holding a dumbell on the side and a hand on your head for doing side bends, Hold a 8-15 lb dumbell, plate or a weighted bar OVER YOUR HEAD with both hands and do sets of 10 of the side bend. Keep your elbows high and at 90 degrees. Whatever you do, do not do side bends with two equal weighted dumbells in each hand the weights just cancel each other out.(You would be surprised how many people do them this way)<br><br>
This one is truly brutal.<br>
Put a 25 lb Plate on the floor, get into push up position and place your toes on the edge of the plate. Now drag that plate across the floor while staying in push up position. Keep your body aligned, don't drop your hips. This will fry your shoulders as well as really put some hurt on your abs.<br><br>
OK one more for you sadistic ones.<br>
Get two dumbells with a ratio of 2:1. We will use a 15 and a 30. Hold the 15 in your left hand overhead and the 30 in your right hand down at your side, now squat. Deep Ass to Grass squats. Keep your feet slightly wider than shoulder width and point your toes out slightly if you are taller. Do 8-10 then switch the weights into the opposite hands and repeat. These are very difficult but force your core to stabilize yourself while the heavier weight tries to pull you to one side.<br><br>
Good luck

Hold a medicine ball (heavy as you can) on your forehead, do situps on a swiss ball until you really feel it. Without getting up, extend your arms and the ball straight up over your face and do oblique crunches alternating side to side until it hurts. Without getting up, extend the ball straight out from the top of your head (so the ball and your arms are in line with your body) and toss it up into the air, catching it and throwing it again 10 or 15 times. That's one set.<br><br>
Then put your feet up on the swiss ball and do as many pushups as you can. On your last pushup hold yourself in the pushup position for 30 seconds. Then roll your feet on the ball up underneath you a few times. Hold in the pushup position for another 30 seconds. That's one set.<br><br>
Do two or three sets of each.
