The quest for a flat stomach is a lot of hard work or that's what we think. Vesna p. Jacob, holistic fitness guru, Pilates expert and author says, "Toning the ‘lower abdominals’ isn't all that difficult. There are plenty of exercises that can target these muscles easily. All you need is your mat and an infinity loop". She suggests a set of six exercises that you can do at home. "Repeat all exercises 20 times each and do 2 sets," she adds.
Keep the soles of the feet together and the knees apart, stretch out your arms. As you exhale, engage the core and lift the upper body up, come back to the starting position as you inhale.
Interlock the hands behind the head and move side to side to elongate the neck. Bring the soles of your feet together so that the knees are apart. From this position crunch, while exhaling up and inhale as you come back to the starting position.
This is a great way to tone your arms as well as your lower abs. Get on your hands and knees. Slightly round the back and bring the opposite knee across to the opposite wrist.
To add another dimension to the previous exercise, place the loops around the feet and flex the toes.
Bring both legs into tabletop position and stretch one leg out for your starting position. Keep stretching the alternate leg out, while you keep the head up and engage the core at all the time.
Lie down on your back, place the infinity loop above your knees, keep your feet shoulder width apart, interlock your hands behind the ears, so that your neck is properly supported. Lift your head up, so that the tips of your shoulder blades are off the ground and you are looking at your navel. As you exhale bring one knee to the chest, and go back to the starting position as you inhale and continue the movement alternating the legs.
