Unfortunately for us, there’s no quick solution to getting flat abs…take it from someone, who has tried, cursed and failed at endless sit-ups. However, there is an easy way to start integrating more core work into the workouts you already love. Take yoga, for example. It is improves flexibility and relieves stress, both of which have been shown to help reduce belly flat. Plus, you can easily switch up your yoga sequence to target your abdominal muscles in a much more efficient way than crunches. Don’t believe us? Try it for yourself!
Eagle abs are perfect for strengthening your core. Curl your legs and arms and do 10 reps of sit-ups.
Bring your knee towards your nose as you shift your body into a plank position.
Keeping the lumbar region grounded on the floor and your upper back off of the floor, work your core by rapidly rising up and down.
From a table top position, curl your tailbone to your navel and your chin to your chest, lifting your knees just 2 cm off of the floor.
Starting with your legs in Baddha Konasana, inhale your arms back overhead. As you exhale, bring them forward and lift your upper back, keeping your core engaged.
Work your core by “drawing a window” based on the following sequence: triceps, wrist, wrist, triceps.
Sculpt your arms and abs with this one-handed downward facing dog to plank pose move.
Sink into crow pose while lying on your back. Bring your knees up towards your triceps and your heels towards your glutes.
Undulating from downward facing dog creates heat in your whole body. It is one my favourite warm-ups.
