To do this, lie down on your back, place your feet on the wall which makes a 90-degree angle between your knees and hips. Raise your head and shoulders from the floor which will tighten your abdominal muscles. You can also do knee push-ups or while standing against the wall.

Always take a break, if you stressed your core muscles too much, do your next workout every other day for your muscles to recover.
