5 Exercises to Get an Ultimate Flat Stomach

Virtually everyone today wants their stomach fit and flat; no one wants to go to the beach with a bloated belly and look odd from the rest. Toning the abs is one of the common goals everyone on a proper workout regimen has; although, crunches is a very common exercise known to tighten the abs, not everyone love to do it. We have put together some exercises you can do, asides crunches, to get a flat stomach.

1. Standing overhead pressure

To do this exercise, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, with a weighted ball or dumbbell in both hands. Now, slowly but tightly, pull in your abs, lift arms straight overhead, and reach up as high as you can. Remain in that position for 10seconds, then lower your arms and repeat the process.

2. Leg Swap

With your knees bent, lie on your back and press the ball or weight to the ceiling while you pull your abs in. Lift your right leg, slowly, until it is perpendicular to your body. With your knees still bent, keep your abs tight and lower your right foot to the floor whilst you lift your left leg. Repeat the process.

3. Lying ball extend

Lie on your back with your knees bent, and hold a weight in both hands. Raise your arms overhead until the weight rests on the ground. Once that is done, tighten your abs and hold the pose for a while. Exhale; bring your chin toward your chest and curl shoulders off the floor. Now, lift your arms several inches while you keep your elbows next to your ears. Hold the pose for some seconds, then relax and repeat.

4. Chest Flye with Leg Extension

Chest Fly

This exercise targets the chest and the abs. To do this, lie faceup on a mat and keep your knees bent at 90 degrees over hips. Hold a dumbbell in each hand and extend your arms over your chest, whilst you keep your palms in. Your right knee should be bent, while you straighten your left leg toward the floor and lower your arms out to your sides. Hold for a second or two and return to the original position. Then repeat and keep switching legs.

5. Knee-Up with Overhead Press

Then, lean back a little bit and extend your arms overhead as you lift feet a few inches off the floor. While you do that, bring your knees toward chest and remain in the position for some seconds. Return to the starting position and repeat for as many times as you can.
