A simple add-on to the four basic drills of push up, sit up, leg raise and squat is to perform a simple action while you are doing the drill to broaden your awareness and clean yourself from more tension. For example to turn the hip left and right like a grandfather clock pendulum or a more chalanging one is to lift the hip sideways and the leg as well as you squat and get up (Sailor walk which I reccomend for relaxing and learning to use the hips better). Another example is to roll your forearms in front of you as if you are reeling a heavy rope one way on the sit up and the other on the way down and during the push up to rotate your leg in the air one way and the other on the way up.

Make the drill your own.
