Ball crunches

First For Women - - Health -

“Do­ing crunches on the ball keeps you un­bal­anced, so your core has to do ex­tra work to sta­bi­lize the body,” says Smith, who of­fers well­ness tips on her pod­cast On Health: The Art of Liv­ing. This al­lows you to get deeper ton­ing in the rec­tus and trans­verse ab­do­mi­nis mus­cles, which work to tuck in a lower-belly bulge.

TO DO: Lie with your back on the ball and your feet flat on the floor. Cross your arms over your chest, then crunch your up­per body up to­ward your knees. Hold for one breath; re­turn to start. Do 15 reps.
