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.
Push-Up to Plank Row
Targets back, triceps, biceps, chest, and abs
- Get in full plank position on floor, a dumbbell in each hand with palms facing each other.
- Do a push-up, returning to full plank.
- Immediately drive bent right elbow behind you, bringing dumbbell by ribs. Return dumbbell to floor (holding it throughout) and repeat with left arm to complete 1 rep.
- Do as many reps as you can for 1 minute.
