Planks are best for your core and they strengthen the abdominal muscles. It is such a fantastic yet challenges exercise that can be done anywhere including your garden.

Gradually, you can increase the time of each plank you perform. As you are at home, you can wear anything you want to in order to do this exercise. However, the best is to wear workout shorts with a tank top or a sweatshirt. Make sure whatever you wear, it must make you feel comfortable.
Lunges are great for strengthening the lower-body and they help to initiate exercising regime with not so tough leg exercise. Stand straight as a starting position for this exercise then take one big step with your right leg while shifting your body weight on the same leg. Meanwhile, the left leg also moves forward keeping the foot in the same position but the weight should rather be on the toes only. The knee of the left leg should be parallel to the ground but should not touch the ground. Stay there for 3 to 5 seconds and come back to the starting position. Repeat the same on the alternate legs and this is how the lunges are done. Do twelve on each side and consider it as 1 set. Add 3 sets in your regular workout routine.

The right leg comes forward to about one foot and then goes back to the starting position. Do the same with the left leg.
