1. Lay your body face down, fully stretched, and raise your left leg while raising your right arm. Hold this position for 30 seconds, breathing quietly. Then alternate the exercise.

2. If you have a large ball (fitball), you can do sit-ups, raising your trunk while leaning on the ball. This will make the exercise more intense, helping you to work your abdomen better.

3. Another exercise with the fitball: place a mat, lie down and put your feet on the ball. At the same time, lift your torso and squeeze your buttocks and belly tightly. Hold this position for 30 seconds, and repeat three times.

4. A more intense and effective position: lie down on a mat, raise your legs and stretch your arms forward, creating a 45° angle. At the same time, pull your torso as far back as possible. Hold this position for 20 seconds, repeating 3 sets.

The more you practice these exercises, the more you should increase your support time. Your muscles will then work harder and harder to tone your body.

With this workout you will also get a better performance:

Improve your posture.
Improve your breathing, as well as your concentration.
It also reduces stress.
And it raises your heart rate, causing your metabolism to speed up and blood circulation to be activated.

Remember to improve your diet as well, adding fruits, vegetables and lots of low-fat protein. In addition, drink 2 liters of water a day and sleep about 8 hours a day. All these last details will complete the benefits of these exercises.
