If you want amazing looking stomach abs, you probably already know it’s an uphill struggle. The key is to do some target flat stomach exercises that will help tighten those muscles and give you the six-pack you want to see in the mirror for years. Below are the top seven exercises you should be doing to get that flat stomach.
7. Hip Lift
To do this exercise, lie on your back. Make sure you arms are placed at you side and your palms are facing upward. Next, you need to raise your legs but keep your knees straight and hold your legs at a 90 degree angle. Tighten your stomach muscles. Now lift your hips so they are at least slightly off the ground. Hold that position for at least two seconds. Push yourself to hold it longer.
6. Leg Raises
Here’s another good exercise you can use. First, lie down on your back and place your hands underneath you. Cross your legs so they are connected and raise them off the ground at a 45 degree angle. When your raise them, you will feel pressure on your back. Hold the position as long as you can. Do this ten times but always return to the original position between holds.
5. The Plank
This is another example of great flat stomach exercises. For this one, get into a push up position. Hold your body up by your toes and elbows. Make sure your entire body is as straight as possible. Tighten your abs and hold the position. Your goal for holding it is 30 seconds but you may need to work up to that amount of time. Repeat the exercise three times each day.
4. Chair Lift
Find a chair in your home that has no arms but does have a straight back. Tighten your abs and grab the sides of the chair so that your hands are just a little in front of your hips. Use your hands for support and pull your knees towards your chest. When you get them as high as you can, hold the position for a few seconds and lower your knees back down slowly. Always remember to keep your back straight the whole time.
3. Arm & Leg Stretch
For this exercise, you’ll need an exercise ball placed on the floor. Position yourself so your chest is on the ball and your hands are ahead of it flat against the floor. While you’re in this position, raise your right arm and left leg. Raise them as much as possible without lifting your head or moving your back. Hold this position for several seconds. Then slowly lower your arm and leg. Repeat with the left arm and the right leg then alternate again. Repeat the process ten times.
2. Cross Toe Touching
If you’re tired of lying down for your flat stomach exercises, try this one. Stand straight with your legs apart. Hold your arms out straight at your sides. Hold in your stomach abs and bend at a diagonal angle so the right hand touches the left toe. Do this ten times. Always straighten your body before doing the next touch.
1. Oblique Twist
For this exercise for your stomach abs, you should stay in a standing position and keep your feet apart. Actually, your feet should be parallel to your hips. Now lift up your left knee and rotate to the left then return to the standard position lift up your right knee and twist to the right. Because you’ll be twisting at the waist, this will help work the abs thoroughly. Keep alternating for a count of at least 20.
