Getting a Toned Midsection

It's no secret that just about everyone would like a finely toned midsection with either rock hard abs, a tiny waist, or both. Contrary to popular belief, you don't need a professional trainer or fancy gym to achieve this goal. All you need is time and the right type of specific exercises. By doing these three exercises on a regular basis, in addition to a healthy diet, you will start seeing results in no time.

    • Have your feet stacked one on top of the other
    • With your abs contracted, use your core and forearm to raise your hips until your body is at a straight angle from ankles to shoulders
    • Hold this position for 15-30 seconds, then bring your body back down
