Easy Ab Flatteners

I want flat abs. Really! The thing is I am lazy too and find sit ups too hard. So when I stumbled upon this Instant Ab Flatteners article I was drawn, specially when I saw this, “Spend just five minutes a day on toning your abs and you’ll get an amazing middle”

Now, I can do that! Discipline, discipline! The article lists 5 most effective tummy toners..

Pike 90

  1. Lie faceup; raise legs until perpendicular to floor, feet flexed. 
  2. Lower right leg so it hovers 1 or 2 inches off floor and place hands lightly behind head. 
  3. In this position, do 15 crunches, lifting chest toward ceiling and lowering. Switch legs and repeat.

Crunchy frog

  1. Sit with knees bent, feet flat. 
  2. Keeping legs together, raise feet several inches and bring knees toward chest. 
  3. Wrap arms around knees without touching legs. 
  4. Extend legs and stretch arms to sides, palms forward. 
  5. Return to wrapped-arm position; repeat. Do 15 reps.

  2. Bend elbows and raise arms out to sides at shoulder level (like goalposts).

  1. yeah same here. I always do things well at the first few times but then I get distracted so goodbye to getting fit. Hmm I really wonder when I would be that disciplined. If only discipline could be bought..
