 Abdominal Hold
This is the sort of move that looks so wonky, you surehope your roommate doesn't catch you doing it --unless she also gets to see you look stellar in abathing suit, in which case she just may pull up achair.
Do it:
Sit tall on the edge of a sturdy chair (or step with four risers) and place your hands on the edge with your fingers pointing toward your knees.Tighten your abs and bring your toes 2 to 4 inches off the floor. Lift your butt off the chair.Hold this position for as long as you can -- aim for 5to 10 seconds.Lower yourself down and repeat.Continue this exercise for 1 minute.VIDEO: See the abdominal hold

Do it:
Sit tall on the mat with your knees bent by your chestand your hands at your sides.Lie down with your knees bent and your palms facingdown.Exhale and raise your head and shoulders off themat.Vigorously pump your arms 6 inches up and down,reaching with your fingertips.Inhale for 5 pumps, then exhale for 5 pumps. Be sureto curl your chin in toward your chest.Do 100 pumps, or 10 full breaths.Try to keep your lower back pressed in toward thefloor and keep your lower abs pulled in toward your spine. You should keep your abs engaged this waythroughout the workout.VIDEO: See the hundred
