Crunches

If you want to work your stomach muscles, schedule in crunches. Lie down on the floor on your back and place your hands on your chest with your knees bent. Raise your body and use your abs to do so, pressing your lower back into the floor. Continue this exercise 25 times and rest for 90 seconds then go again. Build up your stamina and watch as your abs tighten. 

Push-ups

This is a great exercise to build up arm muscles. Most people know how to do a push-up but never try to. Give this exercise a try. If you must do it from your knees, do so, then work your way up to being on your toes. Repeat 10 to 20 reps as you and build up every few weeks to more reps.
