But this is one exercise that can really help you work on your entire abdomen and work out the muscles to enhance metabolism. All you need to do is sit on the chair and try to lift your body weight on your hands. Hold this posture. Do a maximum of 10 minutes.
The Side Crunch
This move works more on your side abs and gives them shape. Kneel on the floor focusing your balance on the right side while your palm is on the floor and keep your left hand behind your head, elbow pointing the ceiling.
Now slowly lift your leg to hip height while extending your arm above the leg. A set of 6 to 8 repetitions are enough.
This is quite an exhaustive move. Sit straight on a mat with legs bent and kneed touching chest. Keep your hand at your sides and lie down with bent knees.
Try to lift your shoulders and head while exhaling. Lift your arms up and down while inhaling and exhaling with the motion of your hand. Complete 10 full breaths. The burn in your muscles will let you know when to rest.
Opposite Arm and Leg Raise
This is the perfect workout to work on your balance and abs at the same time. Bend down on all four of your limbs keeping your arms parallel to your legs. Slowly raise your left arm and left leg in alignment to your torso. Repeat this with the right arm and leg. Complete a set of 20 to get flatter abs.
The Prone Plank
This is a simple yet effective move. Get into push-up posture. Your head should be aligned with your spinal cord while the palms should be on the floor beneath your shoulders.
Maintain this position for at least 30 seconds. Repeat after rest but not more than four times.
Squat Thrust with Twist
Take this move slowly because you don’t want a back sprain or anything. Raise your hands till shoulder level while keeping your legs one foot apart. Bend down in squat position while twisting your upper body on the left.
Repeat the same with the right side. To make this work properly, your knees must be bent at 90 degrees.
The Climb Up
This move takes time to get used to but is not impossible to do. You will need to tie a cloth around 3 feet long around the ball of your right foot and lie down on the floor with knees bent.
Hold the cloth by the edges in both hands and extend your right leg keeping your foot bent. With the support of the cloth try lifting your head and shoulders off the floor maintaining a count of 2. A set of 8 reps will do.
This is one of the most effective of the top 10 best moves for flatter abs. Sit on the floor, legs extended and pressed together. Take your upper body down till it is 45 degrees elevated from the ground.
Now bring up your arms like a ballerina and twist yourself while placing the right arm on the mat while keeping the left arm up. Repeat this on the other side and do a set of 8 reps on either side.
The Single-Leg Stretch
This move will wreck your abs and you will immediately feel the burn. Lie down on your back with your knees bent. Lift your head and shoulders to your chest.
Bring your left knee towards your chest placing left hand on ankle and right hand below the knee while exhaling. Repeat with the right leg. 5 to 10 reps of this move are enough.
The Cobra Pose
This is more of a relaxation posture. Lie down on a mat face down and pals alongside your shoulders. Lift your head, chest and shoulders off the floor. Stay in this posture for at least 20 to 30 seconds and do a set of 8 to 10 times.
