4 Moves to Six-Pack Abs

Nicole Williams, owner of Allure Pole Dance & Fitness Studio, demonstrates four killer moves for getting flat, sexy abs in these Tone Skincare gifs.

  1. Scissor Kicks

Do 2 Reps of 20 Seconds

This exercise will strengthen your core and target your lower abs.
Laying on your back keep place your hands behind the head. Keep your abs tight and lift your left knee to touch the right elbow. Go back to the beginning position, raise your right knee, and touch it with left elbow. Make sure the abs remains engaged and your hands are relaxed, thus preventing you from pulling on your neck.

  1. Butt Raises

Do 2 Reps of 20 Seconds

Lie on your back on an exercise mat (or soft ground). Wedge your hands under your butt. Slightly raise your shoulders and feet off the floor (keep a slight bend in your knees) – that’s the starting position. Using your abs, raise your legs to approx. 30 degrees. Keep the rest of your body steady. Then slowly lower your legs back to the starting position (don’t let them touch the floor). Repeat until you complete your reps

  1. Leg Straddles

Begin sitting on the floor with your legs stretched out in front of you and feet together. Place your hands behind you to the sides, and lean your upper body back to a 45-degree angle. Raise and separate your legs until you’re in straddle position. Then bring your legs back together while lowering them to the ground with control.

Complete three sets of 10 to 15 reps.

  1. Double Crunch

Repeat this 10 times, and complete three sets.

 Lie flat on the floor with the lower back pressed into the ground. Place your hands slightly either side of your head, do not lock your fingers or pull the head up. Lift your knees to a 45 degree angle. Slowly go through a bicycle pedal motion with the legs. Alternately touching your elbows to the opposite knee twisting back and forth through the core, keep the elbows back rather than forward to the chest as this could strain the neck
