Re: what exercises that will build muscles & confidence?

The push up is the king of excercises. If you can only do one thing, do push ups. Just go for as many as you're able. There's no shame in starting with knee push ups if you need to, they allow you to do more and have better form. This is much better than straining through a smaller set of "real pushups."

Crunches are good to, but be sure you do them in a way that doesn't strain your neck. You don't need to go all the way up, just enough so that your abdominals engage.


And don't forget your back- the "superman" is good for the back.

And finally squats.

Start with those four, and build from there.
