Lie flat on your back on the floor. Take a deep breath, suck in
your stomach, keep your eyes focused on the ceiling, and raise
your upper body off the ground until it is at a 45-degree angle with
the floor. Don’t pull on your neck, as this can lead to forward head
posture, neck pain and, in extreme cases, migraine headaches.
Hold the contraction for 2 to 3 seconds and slowly return to the
starting position. Perform 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps.
Standing side bends
Stand up straight and suck in your stomach. Keeping your legs
straight and your arms at your sides, lean from left to right. Make
sure you don’t rotate at the hips; rather, keep your upper body in
a forward-facing position and simply tilt your body left and right.
This easy ab exercise primarily works the obliques, but it also
engages the entire abdominal wall and some of the lower back
muscles. Perform 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps.
The torso twist is one of our favorite routines for tightening up
the midsection and it's among the best easy ab exercises. Stand
up straight, suck in your stomach and rotate your upper body
from left to right while keeping your legs straight. As you turn,
you will engage both the internal and external obliques, which are
very important core muscles. The contraction produced in this
exercise will hit the obliques from a different plane of motion
than the side bends. Perform 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps.
Whenever you do a crunch, you work the entire abdominal area,
but there are ways to add a little more emphasis to certain
sections of the abdominals. The double crunch combines the
crunch and another exercise called the knee raise, which will
place more emphasis on the lower abdominal region.
Lie flat on your back against the floor with your legs in the air and
your knees bent at a 90-degree angle so that your calves are
parallel with the floor. Take a deep breath, suck in your stomach,
keep your eyes focused on the ceiling, and raise your upper body
off the ground until it is at a 45-degree angle with the floor. Once
again, make sure not to pull your neck. Hold the contraction for 2
to 3 seconds and slowly return to the starting position. Perform 3
sets of 10 to 15 reps.
