These exercises are very simple, just follow the simple instructions. Here’s what you need to do.

Beginner Moves

Front Plank

Butterfly Crunch

You need to repeat this exercise 10 times.

Side to Side

Targets: obliques (sides)

Return to start, then switch sides. Make sure you repeat this exercise at least 15 times.

Intermediate Moves

Scissors

Targets: obliques

Here’s what you need to do – first, you need to lie on your back with your fingers resting behind your head. Make sure you keep your abdominals tight – and raise your left knee and touch it to your right elbow. Return to start, then raise your right knee and touch it to your left elbow. Alternate for 15 reps in a smooth, continuous motion, while you keep your abs engaged and hands relaxed so you don’t pull on your neck. You need to work up to 2 sets.

Fingers to Toes

Targets: rectus abdominus

Here’s what you need to do – you need to lie on your back with your legs straight and extended toward the ceiling, with arms down by your sides.

Reverse Crunch with Resistance Bands

Advanced Moves

Ball Leg Lift

Targets: transverse abdominals

Here’s what you need to do – first, you need to lie face down on a ball and roll forward until your hands are on floor and just the tops of your feet are flat on ball. Keep your back and right leg straight – and slowly lift leg a couple of inches toward the ceiling. Make sure you hold for 3 seconds, then lower. Note: you need to do 10 reps, then switch legs and add 2 repetitions each week as long as you can maintain perfect form.

Knee-Ups

Targets: rectus abdominus

Here’s what you need to do – you need to brace yourself between the backrests of two sturdy chairs, keeping elbows slightly bent, shoulders down, neck relaxed, head and chest lifted. Note: make sure you keep your abs tight, exhale and then very slowly bring your knees to your chest without swinging back and forth. Note: you should be careful and if your form falters, try raising one knee at a time. You need to do 3 sets of 15 reps. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to share.
