How To Do:

  • Begin in a seated position with bended knees and flat feet.
  • Lean back slightly with a strong straight back and get into a comfortable position, contracting your ab muscles.
  • Stretch your arms out in front of you and twist the torso from side to side.
  • For more intensity, tap the floor to the right of your hip and then the left side.
  • To further increase difficulty, lift your feet off the floor or use a weighted medicine ball in your hands.

4. V-Ups:

How To Do:

  • Be seated on a flat bench so that your body is positioned perpendicular to its length. Anchor your body with your bum at all times.
  • Grab the back of the bench, drop your torso backwards, and extend your legs forward until your entire body is straight and parallel to the floor.
  • Simultaneously pull in your lower abs and crunch your upper abs to form a “V” with your quads and stomach.
  • Keep your abs tight, a straight back, and strong posture throughout.
  • Repeat for 15-20 reps.

  • Now come back to the same standing position.
  • Now repeat the same on the right side. Now hold this position for about 15 seconds.
