HOW: This exercise will target the side of your abs. Lay on your side and lift your legs from the sofa as you do your crunches. If you need some extra help you can place your upper arm behind your head for support. You can also do side crunches when laying on your side with knees resting on the sofa.
HOW: Lift your head and arms slightly off the bed and tense your abs at the same time. This is a static exercise so just hold the position for as long as you can. Try counting to 50. If you managed that then either rest for a few seconds and do another set, or keep counting until you reach 100…or more.
The feeling as you relax after this exercise is unbeatable. You will feel totaly relaxed and can go to sleep knowing that you ended the day on a high note.
HOW: Lift your feet so they don’t touch the ground and tense your abs at the same time. Also try to lift your thighs slightly off the chair. Keep your feet elevated for as long as you can manage. Rest & repeat.
The great thing about this workout is that it’s very discreet and and you can do it pretty much everywhere when sitting down. Try it the next time you are in a meeting or just working in front of your desk.
At first it will feel easy but after a while your will feel that this is an effective exercise. Don’t forget to keep your abs tensed. It’s the key!
