Well-known traditional core exercises, such as crunches or the bicycle, are great for sculpting the upper abdomen, but they barely touch those pesky lower abdominal muscles, making toning this problem in place quite a challenge for most of us.

  1. SIT-UPS (repeat 30 to 100 times)

Lie down with your back on the floor, legs bent and feet on the ground. Have a partner hold your feet down while you do a sit-up.

  1. LEGS UP (repeat 2 x 25 times)

Lie on the floor and place your palms on the floor. Then slowly raise your legs to a 90 degree angle. Hold this position for several seconds, then lower them back down without touching the floor and raise them again.

  1. AB BIKES (repeat 2 x 25 intervals)

First, lie on your back. Then, with your knees bent and your hands behind your head, do not cross your hands. Next, engage your abdominals. Lift your shoulders. And your upper back off the floor and at the same time, move your right elbow to your left knee so that they meet in the middle of your body. Then, you must change your position. Then, bringing your left elbow toward your right knee, continue as fast as you can while keeping your torso lifted off the ground.

  1. HALF-STUPS – CRUNCH (target abs – repeat 30 times)

Lie with your back on the floor and bend your knees. Keep your arms behind your head and slowly lift your upper torso into the air.
