Step 1: Get down on all your fours in a push-up position with your arms straight and your hands placed slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Your body should form a straight line from your ankles to your head.

Step 1: Place your hands directly under the shoulders, slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.
Step 2: Squeeze your glutes and prop your body, so it forms a straight line from head to your toes. Hold the position for the prescribed number of repetitions.
4. Bicycle Crunch
Step 1: Lie flat on the floor with lower back on the ground. Put your hands behind your head, without locking your fingers together then bring your knees in towards your chest and lift your shoulder blade off the ground.
Step 2: Straighten your right leg out to about a 45-degree angle to the ground while turning your upper body to the left, bringing your right elbow towards the left knee.
Step 3: Make sure your rib cage is moving and not just your elbows. Now switch sides and do the same motion on the other side to complete one rep. Continue alternating from side to side until completing the prescribed number of reps.
