1. Plank

Planks are extremely beneficial in strengthening your core (front and back), shoulders, and abs.

  • Start in a push-up position on the ground.
  • Bend the elbows to 90 degrees
  • Form a straight line of the entire body, and hold as much as possible without moving the butt or waist.

2. Squats

  • Start with the feet shoulder-width apart
  • Roll the shoulders down and back away from shoulders
  • Stretch the arms in front of the body
  • Gradually bend the knees, bring the hips forward, and lower yourself to bring the thighs in a parallel position to the floor, with a straight back.
  • Press the feet into the floor to return to the initial position.

Squats strengthen your core, boost the fat burning process, and build the hams, quads, and calves.

3. Bird-Dog

  • Start in a plank position, and prop yourself on the knees and hands
  • Stretch one leg and the opposite arm simultaneously, keeping the body balanced
  • Hold for a few seconds, return to the initial position, and change sides.

This exercise will strengthen the abs and the lower back.

4. Lying Hip Raises

  • Lay flat, bend the knees, and keep the feet flat on the floor
  • Extend the out to your sides at a 45° angle, squeeze the glutes and elevate the hips upward, by tilting the pelvis
  • Return to the initial position, and repeat the exercise.

This will strengthen the abs, back, thighs, glutes, and hamstrings.

5. Push-ups

  • Start in a plank position
  • Place the hands under the shoulders to push the whole body up. The legs, buttock, and back should be in a straight line.

Push-ups target all body muscles, so they will strengthen the entire body.
