    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.
