Planks are the perfect way to strengthen your core and they’re a great exercise as it engages a lot of different muscles making it a great all-round move if you have limited time. If you’re not used to planks then you may find them challenging but try to add a few seconds each time to build up your strength and core muscles.

If you’re sitting down for long periods then squats are perfect for using the muscles we tend to neglect. It really targets the legs, **** and stomach making this a really effective workout when you have little time. This exercise also benefits your knees and strengthens the muscles around them, protecting them from damage.

Wall sits are great because you can do them anywhere taking away the need to set up exercise equipment. This works your leg muscles and core making it a perfect exercise to strengthen and tone. Up the amount you can do everyday to challenge yourself or hold something heavy to add extra resistance to it. This only takes minutes but you reap a huge amount of benefits.
