Alison Sweeney's Flat-Abs Workout
The key to Alison Sweeney's crazy-toned midsection? This sneaky crunch-free circuit. "In each workout, we string together movements -- push and pull, up and down, left and right -- that always work her center," says Sweeney's trainer, Steve Lee. Try a couple of rounds of his five-pack below to help carve your six-pack as you sculpt all over. Alison uses 12-pound dumbbells, but newbies can start with five-pounders.
Sumo High Row
Targets back, shoulders, biceps, abs, butt, and hamstrings
- Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder width, toes turned slightly out, and hold dumbbells in front of hips, palms facing in.
- Squat down and then stand up quickly, driving bent elbows up above shoulders to bring dumbbells close to chin.
- Lower arms to start. Do as many reps as you can for 1 minute.
