Lazy girl abs in 3 cinchy steps


We all want flat, toned bellies above our jeans, right? Right! But the thing is...crunches are boring. And sit-ups? Eh. Why can't we have a workout magic wand to get the abs of our dreams, already? Well, we don't have the magic wand, but we do have three easy moves you can do anytime, anywhere (like sitting on the couch watching TV--score!) so you can feel the burn without working for it. High five!

 

Reverse crunches

OK, don't run and hide--these are easy peasy, promise. Scoot down so you're laying on your back, or sit up so you're balanced on your booty, not your tailbone, and your back is straight. Bend your knees and hold your legs together (or a few inches apart for a little bit more of a challenge). Then squeeze your abs and lift those knees to your chest. Hold for five seconds, then slowly release so that your thighs are hovering over your starting position. Repeat, repeat, repeat.

 

Knee highs

Ya might not want to do these in public, but they're perfect for when you're waiting for your microwave popcorn to finish popping or are brushing your teeth. Stand tall, shoulders down and relaxed, with your feet spread shoulder-width apart. Lift your left leg, knee bent, and pull it up toward your side. Crunch down with your left elbow, then release your foot to the floor. Repeat and keep count, then do the same number of reps on the other side.

 

Baby bicycles

Hit the ground (or lie flat on the couch or your bed). Fold your arms under your head for support (but don't lift up your neck--ouchies!) and bend your knees so your feet are flat. Lift your feet off the ground a few inches and then rapidly pedal in mid air, drawing your legs up as high as is comfortable. You want to remain in absolute control of your torso--no wiggling or arching! If you're moving around on your surface, slow it down and limit the range of motion.
