This one’s fantastic for your obliques. Rest on your right forearm, elbow bent at 90 degrees. Straighten your legs so that your neck, waist, hips, and legs are aligned, holding your hips above the floor and pressing the right side of your foot into the floor. Lower your hips to the floor, then lift them up towards the ceiling, engaging in a side crunch. Perform 20-25 reps, and repeat on the opposite side.
2. Rock and Raise
Start out lying on your back with your legs straight and your arms behind your head (a mat may help for this one). It may help to actually grab something behind you, like a workout bench or heavy medicine ball. In one smooth and continuous movement, raise your legs, butt, and lower back off the floor, extending your feet towards the ceiling. Hold here for 3 counts, resting all of your weight on your upper back and shoulders. Slowly and in control, lower your legs to starting position. Perform 15-20 reps.
Get into a pushup position, with a slight bend in your elbows and your palms resting against the floor. Your ankles should be close together. Keeping your legs close together throughout, jump slightly off the floor and rotate your knees to the right. Then in one single movement, rotate your knees to the left. That counts as 1 rep. Perform 10-15 reps total.
4. Forward Ab Kick
Again start in a pushup position, but this time, you’re going to separate your legs. In a single fluid movement, kick your right leg out to the side and as far in front of you as you can. Hold for one count, then return to starting position before repeating with your left leg. That’s 1 rep. Perform 10-15 reps.
Life face up on a mat and extend your legs straight out in front of you. You can rest your hands behind your head with elbows bent, making sure not to put pressure on your neck. Pull your right knee up and into your chest as you lift your shoulders and upper back off the floor, allowing your knee to meet or come close to your chest. Hold for one count, lower to starting, and repeat with your left knee. That counts as 1 rep. Perform 15-20 reps.
6. Figure Eight
This one is great for your lower abs. Lie face up on a workout mat and hold your arms out slightly at your sides, palms down. Extend your legs straight out in front of you with ankles touching. Lift your feet off the floor, keeping them together throughout the movement. Move your feet through the air, making a figure 8 as you loop to the right and then to the left. Perform 10-15 reps before returning your feet to the floor.
