Equipment: none

In order to do this, lie on the ground in the face-down position. Equip yourself in a forearm plank position. Your elbows should be aligned underneath your shoulders. Your forearms should be parallel to one another. Hold for 10 to 20 seconds per set. 

Dead bug

Equipment: none

Lay on the floor in face-up position. Bring your knees over your hips and bend at the knee so that your calf forms a 90-degree angle with your thigh. Simultaneously, lower your left arm above your head while straightening your right leg and sending it towards the floor. Pause and return to the starting position. Do 15 reps.

Hollow extension-to-cannonball

Equipment: none

Bring your knees around your chest as if you are hugging them and form a cannonball position. Extend your legs and arms outwards, pressing your lower back to the floor. Hold this position for five seconds before curling up again. Do 5 reps. 

Leg raises from pull up bar

Equipment: pull up bar

Depress your shoulder blades and drive the elbows down. Pull your chin towards the bar and engage your lats. Then squeeze the abs and raise the legs to 90 degrees. Lower the legs and then slowly lower yourself back to the start position. 

Dumbbell side bend

Equipment: dumbbells

Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Hold a dumbbell in your right hand. Keep your palm facing inwards towards the torso. Keep your back straight and activate your core while you bend to the side. Do this only till the waist. Do 10-15 reps. This will also help your obliques.
