Sit-up

Lie down on the floor and keep your knees bent. You may also hook your feet under some heavy furniture or object so that you can't move them. Now, place your hands behind your head and tighten your core. As you do this, lift your torso up. Your upper body must form a V shape with your thighs. Lower yourself to the starting position. Repeat 20 times.

Star plank

Get down on all fours. Now slowly move your palms and toes out and away from your body so that they form an x-shape. Tighten your core and maintain a straight line from your head to your hips and toes. Hold for 30 seconds and then get back to the starting position. Repeat 20 times.
