Four Moves to Fab Abs

Fab abs are as easy as 1-2-3-4.

OK, well it's not that easy. But these are some good tummy tightening moves worth trying.

It's true that you can't spot reduce per se, but the four abdominal exercises explained in the link above will strengthen your core and, with proper diet and cardiovascular exercise which burns body fat, will yield a tighter tummy. More importantly, strong abs help reduce low-back pain which at least 1 in 4 adults suffer from at some point during their life.

So, whether you want to look better in a bathing suit or stave off low-back pain, it is worth incorporating these four moves into your exercise program.


  1. Glad you were able to finally use that picture of my husband & I.

  2. Since I didn't have your permission, I went ahead and cut off your faces. You know, to protect your privacy.

  3. you know what a Pilates fan I am, so I have to say, that yes, even if you have some flab, doing core exercises still help tighten things up and make you look and feel better overall.....I can totally tell when I miss a few Pilates sessions!

    LWL - thanks for sharing the picture ;-)

  4. Thanks Erin!!!
    And I did 3 of these this morning at the Y...holy cow!!!

  5. OH! These are killer. We do them/variations in boot camp. If I would just stop eating so much damn chocolate, maybe my abs would look better. My weakness this season - Cadbury Mini Eggs. Just finished an oversized handful (or two)...I'm ill...
    LWL - You and your hubby are damn hot!

    By the way, Erin, T-M told me to tell you hello!
