9 Tips to Reach Your Fitness Goals This Year
Finally Flatten Your Abs
For a tauter tummy, you need to target all of your core muscles. "The most effective moves work every major abdominal group -- the deep transverse abs, the internal and external obliques, and the rectus abdominis, or 'six-pack' muscle," says Buren. One move that does the job: The Woodchop. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart holding a resistance tube in both hands. Raise tube toward right shoulder, arms extended in front of body. Bending knees slightly, bring tube diagonally across body toward left hip as you pivot left. Return to starting position and repeat. Do 3 sets of 15 to 20 reps; switch sides.
