Start by lying on your side as shown in the picture, extend your legs and bring them together over each other. Then raise your legs a few inches off the floor and hold them up for 1 to 2 seconds, then lower them back down to the floor. Then switch sides and repeat the routine for another 20 seconds. For maximum performance, tighten your upper abdominal muscles.

Lie on your back with your legs extended over your hips, keeping your knees slightly bent and your arms out to the sides with your palms facing down. Keep your knees together, and slowly move your legs to one side and return them to the center. Repeat the movements on the other side and continue alternating for 45 seconds. Recommendation: do not let your hips separate too far from the floor.

5- Dumbbell Twists

Use a dumbbell or weight plate to perform this exercise, so that the weight helps set a position and balances the load in the workout. Hold the weight with both hands, then sit down and bend your knees while keeping your feet flat on the floor. Lean back at a 45-degree angle and keep your arms straight in front of your chest. Turn to the right making sure only your torso moves. Return to your starting position. Then turn to the left as far as you can. While performing the exercise imagine that you have a wall right behind you to keep you straight. You should repeat the twists at least 30 times.
