Totally Ab-sessed!

When we asked GL readers to spill their fave gutbusters, the response was overwhelming. You girls love to torch those tummies—here are your best-ever movies for getting a six-pack in no time flat.

Perfect Pikes
“Lie face-up with raised legs until perpendicular to floor, feet flexed and hands lightly behind head. Lower right leg so it hovers one or two inches off floor. In this position, do 15 crunches, lifting chest toward ceiling and lowering back to start. Switch legs and repeat.” –Taira N., 13

Get Pumped!
“I listen to one of my favorite upbeat songs while I lay on the ground and do about 10 crunches. After about 10, I switch to side crunches. It makes me feel good about myself and, knowing that, I do more!” –Taylor N., 14

Roll With It
“My favorite is so much fun, you won’t even realize it’s an ab workout. Sit with your knees up and your arms around them. Next you gently fall back, then roll your self back up! Do about 20 a day.” –Kaitlyn G., 15

Do the Hula
“My BFF and I discovered Super Hula Hoop for our Wii Fit. One night, we decided to have a competition with a couple friends. All the girls said it was really fun—and they totally got a workout. It’s a blast to play with friends, family or just beat your own score.” –Emily P., 14
