Fit Fridays: List of top 5 Ab Exercises

It’s not as hard as you think to achieve that flat belly six-pack. Just a few minutes a day doing these 5 moves and you’ll get there in no time! That’s in addition to a healthy diet of course.

1) Pilates 100

Pilates 100, advanced position.

On your back knees bent, pull you head up toward your chest so you’re looking at your knees. Lift your legs up in bent position, for a more advanced pose straighten your legs toward the ceiling and at a 45 degree angle (like the picture above). Lift arms and pulses them up and down for 100 counts, breathing in for 5 pulses and out for 5.

2) Bicycles

Lie down, flat back. Lift your head toward your chest like in the previous exercise. Arms bent behind your head. Lift legs to a 45 degree angle and then pull one knee in toward the opposite elbow and switch. Repeat for 20 on each side.

3) Seated, Flat Bench Leg Pull-Ins

Just like in the picture, sit on angle with legs stretched out in front of you. Pull your legs in toward your belly really so that core strength so you don’t hurt your back. Then push legs out, and repeat. Do this for 10 to 20 reps or as many as you are comfortable with.

4) Planks, regular and side

5) Straight Leg Crunch

Lie on your back with legs straight up in the air, using your abdominal muscles push those legs straight up to the sky and lower down. Repeat for 10 to 20 reps. You can work your obliques by shimmying your butt from side to side on the floor.

Bonus move… s ide Jack knives

Just like in the picture, lie on your side and lift you elbow toward your knees and lower down. Repeat 10 to 20 times then switch sides.
