Stop Crunching And Try This Simple Routine For Absolutely Ripped Abs at Home

1. Flutter kicks

Lie on your back with the head and back relaxing on the ground, arms extended by your sides. Tighten your abs and hold the legs straight out and lifted about six inches above the ground. Start the movement by lifting the left leg higher than the right leg, then lower it as you lift the right leg higher. This should be done quickly, in a scissor-like motion.

You can also tuck your hands underneath the glutes for a better control of the movement. One kick with each leg constitutes one rep. Perform 5 sets of 15 reps.

2. Straight leg raises

Lie on your back with the head and back relaxing on the ground and the legs extended. Keeping the knees straight and close together, slowly lift your legs straight up towards the ceiling until they are about perpendicular to the floor, if possible. Hold the position for a few moments, keeping the lower abs contracted. Slowly return to the starting position.

3. Side raises

Lie on the side with a straight body and have your body weight distributed on your forearm. The feet should be on top of each other. Lift your hips up off of the floor, powering the movement with your forearm, so that your whole body forms a straight line, with the head and neck aligned with the rest of the body.
