Plank

It's practically a one-move static exercise that will help you build a core of steel, ripped abs and strong shoulders. Just get into a push-up position on the floor, bend your elbows 90 degrees and prop yourself on the elbows, forearms and forefeet, forming a straight line from head to feet, then hold it for as long as you can without moving your waist or butt.

Push Ups

This is the exercise that utilizes literally every major muscle in your body, thereby helping you firm your whole body. Get into a plank position, placing your hands directly under the shoulders and push your whole body up, maintaining a straight line with the legs, back and butt. Lower your body down on the same way and repeat.

Squats

Squats will help you build your quads, hams and calves, while also strengthening your whole core and enhancing greater overall fat burning. For the standard squat, your feet should be shoulder-width apart or slightly wider. Extend your hands out in front of you and and sit back and down, keeping your head facing forward. Make sure that your back doesn't round. Keep lowering yourself until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Press back up through your heels.

Bird-Dog

From a plank position, prop yourself on your knees and hands and simultaneously stretch one leg and the opposite arm, maintaining both perfectly straight. Hold for a moment, then lower them down and repeat with the other leg and arms. This exercise increases core strength in both abs and lower back.

Lying Hip Raises

The lying hip raise is the perfect bodyweight exercise for building powerful glutes and hamstrings while also strengthening your abs, back and thighs. Lie on your back on the floor with bent knees and flat feet. Extend your arms out to your sides at a 45-degree angle. Squeeze your glutes and lift your hips toward the ceiling, making sure to tilt your pelvis. Lift them up as high as possible, squeezing your glutes. Slowly lower yourself down and repeat.
