Upper Abs: Crunches On Exercise Ball

Sit on an inflated exercise ball and place your hands on the back of your head. Now walk your feet away from the ball so your torso starts to roll onto the ball. The ball should support your hips and the curve of your lower back. Your legs should form a bridge with your knees bent at right angles.

Exhale and lift your upper body by about 45 degrees, pulling the deep abs in toward the spine, and return to starting position. Do 25 reps.

Plank With Glute Squeeze

Get on the floor, stomach facing the ground. Prop yourself up on your forearms, and flex your toes. Your body should form a straight line. Contract your abs and glutes—tightly. Hold this for 15 seconds, then rest by lowering your knees to the ground for five seconds. That’s one rep. Do 10.

Standing Balance

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and take a few breaths to center yourself. Bring left knee toward chest, holding it with the left hand. Place right hand on a wall for balance if necessary. Inhale to lengthen the sides of your body from waist to armpits, and exhale to ground right foot. Take about three to five breaths here; with each exhalation, gently draw belly and pelvic floor up and in for more stability. Switch sides and repeat. As your balance improves, try taking a hand off the wall and placing it on the waist.

Oblique V-Up

Lie on your left side, legs angled 30 degrees from your hips. Rest your left arm on the floor and put your right hand behind your head. Lift your straight legs off the floor, bringing your torso toward your legs. Slowly return to start. That’s one rep. Do 15 to 25 reps on each side.

Bicycle Crunches

These crunch exercises are ranked as the best and easiest ab exercise by the American Council on Exercise (ACE). It works various parts of the body like the entire abdominal area, including the stubborn lower abs.

Lie down on your back with your legs extended, feet about ten inches off the ground, and your hands behind your head. Now rotate your right elbow toward your left knee. Keep your opposite elbow on the ground and the opposite leg straight. Try to pull your navel down to your spine to help maintain a neutral spine. Straighten your leg back to the start position pause and repeat the motion to the opposite side. Repeat this 5-8 times each side, increasing reps as you become stronger.

Do these three times a week. Don’t forget to eat a healthy and balanced diet to be in better shape by the time bathing suit season rolls around!
