In brief: Many kinds
There are many kinds of exercises that can strengthen the "core abdominal and back muscles.
My favorite happens to be yoga but pilates also strengthens the core very well. I usually recommend that people who do not exercise alot or at all start with a beginner class in yoga or pilates and work up. Also it is a good idea to consult with your doctor before starting any exercise program
