Lie on your back with your arms out to your sides so your up­per body forms a T-shape and your legs are di­rectly above you in the air. Make cir­cles with your legs by low­er­ing them to­wards the floor (don’t take them all the way to the floor; bring them back up when they’re half­way down). Re­peat. Do 8 in a clock­wise di­rec­tion, then re­verse.

Re­peat. Mountain climber

As­sume a push-up po­si­tion on hands and toes, with arms straight and body form­ing a straight line from head to heels. Bring your right knee to­wards your chest be­fore re­turn­ing to the start­ing po­si­tion and re­peat­ing with left leg. Al­ter­nate ‘run­ning’ your knees into your chest like this for one minute.

Use your core as a corset

Prac­tise the no-crunch crunch. From a stand­ing po­si­tion, place your fin­gers on your hip bones and trace them in­ward. Then pull your tummy but­ton back to­wards your spine. Don’t hold your breath or hunch your shoul­ders – just pull in that lower part of your tum. Hold this pulling-in for 10 sec­onds, re­lax and re­peat. Do 5-10 at a time through­out the day.
