Recent piano exercises

A couple of simple exercises I've been warming up with lately (in all major and minor keys):

Four-note arpeggios in every inversion. Left hand begins on root position with right on first inversion. Ascending arpeggios going up, descending going down. Accent on the beat. Swap hands on different days (with left hand on first inversion and right on root).


Simple 1-3 2-4 3-5 thirds in each hand. Try to bring out the top voice.
