This hold gives your abdominal muscles a serious workout, hundreds of crunches not required!


1 Lie flat on your back with your legs bent, feet flat on the floor.

2 Keeping your knees bent, lift your legs up so your calves are parallel to the floor. Keep your arms by your sides, palms facing down.

3 Tighten your core as you lift your chest slightly off the floor; try to keep your gaze on the ceiling and let your arms hover a few inches above the ground. Hold for a few seconds, then drop back down.

4 That’s one rep. Do at least 10.
