If you really want to tighten your abdominal area and you’re too busy to visit the gym, you should definitely try these exercises. They’re easy to do and you can do it in your own home, when you want to and for how long you want to.
Lie on your back and your hands behind your head. Raise your legs and bent them at 90 degrees. Bring your right elbow towards your left knee and then your left elbow towards your right knee, building up to 60 seconds. Do 10 reps for each leg then take 10 seconds break. Continue with the exercise again.
Get into a pushup position with palms on the floor beneath your shoulders. Hold this position for 30 seconds, with your abs contracted and your arms and legs extended. When you get stronger, you’ll be able to hold this position up to one minute.
Legs up high
Lie on your back placing your hands underneath your butt. Join your legs and then lift them up towards the ceiling. When lowering your legs down, try not to get them on the floor, but a few inches up in the air. Repeat 10 times.
The Boat pose
Sit with your feet on the floor. Bend your knees and put your hands beneath your knees for support. Keep your chest lifted and shoulders back, raise your lower legs until they are parallel to the floor and you’ll be balancing on your sitting bones. While you’re in this position, keep your abs muscles tight. Hold this position for 5 to 110 breaths.
Sit in a comfortable cross-legged position. Place your hands on the mat next to your hips. Tighten your pelvic floor, push into your hands, and then lift your entire lower body off the mat. Hold this position for 3 breaths, then lower your back down. This is a pretty hard move, so if you can’t lift your whole lower body, keep your feet on the floor and just lift your butt. Do 3 reps.
Sit on the edge of a chair. Place your hands on the edge with your hands placed toward your knees. Tighten your abs. Raise your toes 2 or 3 inches off the floor and then lift your butt off the chair. Hold this position for as long as you can, 5 to 10 seconds. Lower yourself down and repeat.
