What's Your Toughest Maya Exercise?

I nominate these:

Legs: One-leg Bridge on Stability Ball
Arms: Pushup with Stability Ball
Balance: Half Moon
Abs: V-ups

How about you?

Legs: Lunge squat combo. I'm getting better but more than two sets and I'm toast. Forget about adding hand weights...

Arms: Narrow push-ups. Much harder for me than the push-ups on the ball. I'm pretty wimpy up top. I'm pretty wimpy all over. Maya's definitely helping, though!

Balance: Half Moon!! If I'm lucky I can just start to stretch my arm up before I tip over! Someone on the Y!F forum noted that she puts her hand on a chair seat instead of going all the way to the floor, I might try that next time.

Abs: V-up is pretty impossible for me at this point, I look nothing like that picture... yet, anyways. :)

Lunge-squat is easy for me - a lifetime of skiing, hiking, and occasional DDR has given me strong major leg muscles. It's the minor ones I have trouble with, and that bridge is a real killer of an isolation exercise.

I hear you on the narrow pushups. Actually there are quite a few arm exercises that can wipe me out. Maya has trained me to cut back the weight all the upright or seated arm exercises because I never know how many sets she plans or whether she might follow up with, say, a plank twist or a side plank that puts me over my limit.

I restarted Maya after two months off and Half Moon is hard all over again. V-Up is doable now but I still remember the first time she threw it at me - yikes!
