This question is really not very clear.  It seems like you are asking about five movements that a body can make that are voluntary.  That doesn't seem logical...  anyway, if this answer is not what you need, clarify.

There are so many movements that a body makes voluntarily (as opposed to things like heartbeats and blinking that are not).

  1. The movement my fingers are making on the keyboard is voluntary.
  2. I just turned my head to look at my kid who was talking to me.
  3. I moved my mouth to talk to her.
  4. I stood up to look out the window and see that it's raining.
  5. I will walk down to the car to drive her to school.

All of the movements mentioned are voluntary.

I agree with the previous responder that this question is not very clear.  Voluntary movements are any body movements that we initiate consciencously.  If I intend to move a part of my body and it moves, than the movement was voluntary.  Examples of voluntary movements are walking, running, sitting down, standing up, scratching your back, chewing, talking, etc.  If you really wanted to know which actions do we perform that are involuntary, that would include but is not limited to: sneezing, blinking, breathing, digestion, our heart beating, sweating, hiccuping, and shivering.  The human body is an amazing machine!
