Do the reverse crunch exercise by lying with the back on the floor. Maintain flexed knees and hips at 90-degree angles and bring the knees toward the chest, raising the butt. Repeat by returning to the flexed position and raising the knees and butt again.

Perform the front bridge exercise by sucking the stomach in while keeping the body straight and not locking the knees. Hold the position for as long as possible and repeat two to three times. Be sure to maintain constant breathing.

Do the side plank exercise by lying on the right side of the body, stacking the legs and holding the elbow beneath the shoulder. With the left hand placed on the left hip or right shoulder, lift the hips until the body's balance is on the feet and forearm. Hold this position for 30 to 45 seconds, and repeat on the other side.

Perform the walkout from a push-up position exercise by starting in a push-up position, placing the hands two inches further than the shoulders. Complete one repetition by walking the hands out as far as they can go and walking them back to the original position.
