1- Push-ups

Push-ups are one of the most common and simple exercises to perform, perfect for toning arms and upper back.

Keep your back straight, as if you were a plank. Stand off the floor with your arms straight but keep your hands just below your shoulders.
Breathe in, and as you exhale, slowly bend your elbows out to the sides bringing your chest closer to the floor. Stop as soon as you feel your shoulders and elbows are aligned. Breathe back in to straighten your arms again and return to the starting position to complete one repetition.
If it is too difficult, perform the exercise with your knees on the floor.
Complete all 5 repetitions.

2- V Crunch

This is one of the most complete and easy to do abdominal exercises, as it works the abs and core equally as well as the extremities.

Lie on your back and extend your legs and arms so that they are stretched out pointing to the ceiling. Stretch your back away from the floor, reaching for your feet with your hands.
Bring your legs towards the floor while stretching your arms upward, getting your abs under tension and your lower abs and glutes to support your full body weight.
Repeat this exercise to complete one repetition.
Complete all 10 repetitions.

3- Jump Squats

One of the best exercises to perform squats at home. In addition, it is one of the exercises for the abdomen and trunk.

Stand up straight with your feet parallel facing forward, shoulders back and back straight.
Pretend to do the movement of a normal squat in the middle of the process; then tense your belly and jump quickly and explosively with your arms stretched upward after a bending movement, avoiding bending your elbows.
When you land, lower your body into the original squat position to complete one repetition. Try to land as quietly as possible, it will exercise your control.
Complete 15 more repetitions.

4- Twists

Sit on a surface and take a ball in your hands; it can be a plastic ball or a special exercise ball that weighs a little more. Bend your legs and raise them, let your back fall backwards so that you feel pressure on your abdomen. Slowly turn to your left until the ball touches the surface, return to the center and do the same on the opposite side. Do 12 repetitions.

5- Lateral Ab

Lie down on a stationary surface and lift your legs by crossing your feet, rise towards the center and when you reach it turn to the right side, lower completely and do the same, but now turn to your left side. Do 10 repetitions.
