1. Extended abs

To begin, lie on the mat on your back and perform classic crunches at the same time that you extend your legs forward when you lower your torso and bring your knees closer to your chest when you lift it. It is important that you breathe out when you do the push-up and that you breathe in when you lay your back on the floor.


2. Alternate leg raises

Now, keep the same position as in the previous exercise, with the trunk lying on the mat and both hands behind the neck, but lift the bent legs so that they form a 90º angle. Next, perform a crunch at the same time that you bring your right knee towards your chest , lower it and repeat the movement with the opposite leg.

3. Climbers

This time, lie on your stomach in a plank position, supporting your body weight with the palms of your hands and the balls of your feet flat on the floor. Then bring your right knee closer to your left elbow, and vice versa . It is important that you keep all the muscles in tension throughout the 30 seconds that the exercise lasts.

4. Crunches in ‘V’

Lie back on your back, lean your torso resting the palms of your hands on the ground and raise your legs bent at a 90º angle. Next, bring both knees towards the left chest and return to the starting position rotating the trunk to reach the left chest this time.


5. Touching the ground

Now lie on your back with your arms stretched out on both sides of your body, raise both legs at a 90º angle, then touch the toe of your right foot to the ground, return to the starting position and repeat the descent with your left foot . Remember that you must always keep the trunk in tension.
