Lie on the floor, legs bent at the knee and resting. Put your hands behind your head and (without using your hands) pull yourself up as far as you can. This will put a lot of pressure on your abdominal muscles.
4. Mountain Climbers
Get yourself into prone position with your body-weight resting on your palms and toes. Straighten your arms and legs before you begin the movement.

Now, like you would climb a mountain, move one feet after the other forward. Your knee should almost touch your navel. Repeat the process by alternating your legs.
5. Leg raises
This is another simple-to-do exercise that will improve your overall core fitness. Lie down on the floor with your arms straight and adjacent to your torso.
