Planks

Planks are one of the most underrated exercises. Nevertheless, this one-move static exercise is great for building a core of steel, ripped abdominal muscles, and strong shoulders.

Hold it as long as you can without moving the waist or buttocks.

Push-ups

This exercise utilizes every major muscle in the body and thus, it encourages the strengthening of the whole body. Get into plank position and put the hands under your shoulders and push the body up. Maintain a straight line with the legs, back, and buttocks. Lower the body down on the same way and repeat.

Squats

This exercise is great for building the quads, hams, and calves and it will also make the core stronger and encourage fat burning. Stand with the feet shoulder-width apart and extend the hands out in front of you and sit back and down. Keep the head faced forward, making sure the back doesn’t round. Continue lowering yourself until the thighs are parallel to the floor. Press back up through the heels.

Bird dog

From a plank position, prop yourself on the knees and hands and simultaneously stretch one leg and the opposite arm. Maintain both the leg and the arm straight. Hold the position for a while and then lower the leg and arm down and repeat the same with the other leg and arm. This exercise will strengthen the core, abs, and lower back.

Lying hip raises

This exercise is highly recommendable for powerful glutes and hamstrings and strong abs, back, and thighs. Lie on your back on the floor, bend the knees, and keep the feet flat.
