  2. Lower yourself into a forearm position and rest your weight on your forearms.
  3. Engaging your core, keep your body straight for 30 seconds and release.
  4. Repeat the exercise several times a day, increasing the intensity and duration as you feel your body getting stronger.

5. Crunches

Crunches are often confused with sit-ups, but while crunches don’t require you to go all the way up, they are actually more difficult for beginners as they put more pressure on your stomach muscles. This is how to do crunches properly:
