5 Speedy Moves for Flat Abs


Blast those abs into shape with our current fave moves. Bust out these exercises while you’re watching TV or after a jog and you’ll be on your way to a serious six-pack. (And remember: go through each of the sets twice.) For even quicker results? Up your cardio, girl.
 
Vertical Leg Crunch
Lie on the floor and extend your legs straight up with your knees crossed. With your hands on your head, contract your abs, lifting your shoulder blades off the ground. Lower back to start. Be careful not to jerk your neck. Do 10-15 reps.

Plank
Start in a push-up position. Lower down, so that your palms, forearms and elbows are flat on the ground. Keep your back flat and hold this position for 30-60 seconds. Rest and then repeat a 3-5 times.
 

Side-Plank
Lie on your side, with your hips knees and ankles stacked, resting on your forearm (left or right). With both feet together, raise your hip off the floor (you’ll keep yourself balanced with your forearm and feet). Keep your back straight and hold for 30-60 seconds. Rest and repeat on the opposite side. Repeat the entire sequence three times. 

Bicycle
Lie on the floor on your back. With your hands behind your head, bring your right knee towards your chest, while turning your body and bringing your left elbow towards your right knee. Switch sides, bringing your right elbow to your left knee. Continue to alternate, moving your legs in a “peddling” motion for 10-15 reps.

Six-Inches
Lie on the floor with your feet together and hands on your side. Lift your feet off of the floor holding them about six inches off the ground. Try to hold for 30 seconds (it’s gonna be tough!). Repeat three times.
