Consult...: With a personal trainer. They will be able to help alter your exercise routine to focus on your personal goals. They also will be able to progress your current routine to make it more difficult. Best of luck!

Stretching first: Lay on back, bend knees towards chest. Hands rest on knees. Take up slack towards chest. Now, activate your arms to keep knees where they are while you push your knees into your hands for 5 secs. Relax. Take up slack. Repeat 3x.
