Leg raises

  • Lie down on the floor with both legs vertical as if you were against a wall.
  • Place your arms outstretched on the floor and put your hands under your buttocks.
  • Now slowly lower your right leg and bring it as close to the ground as you can, but without touching it. Then slowly raise it back to the starting position.
  • Do the same with the left leg. This is one rep
  • Do 15 reps.

Elbow-to-knee sit-ups

  • To perform this exercise you must lie on your back.
  • Extend your legs and put your hands touching your head.
  • Then, keeping both legs raised a few inches, raise your left leg and try to bring your right elbow to your knee.
  • Go back to the starting position. And do the movement on the opposite side. This is a repeat.

  • From this position slowly rotate to the right, while touching the ground near your hips, then return to the center and continue to the left to complete one rep.
