The bicycle crunch makes the top of the list of the 6 best ab exercises because it so completely hits almost every part of your midsection
To do this move, lay on the floor and face the ceiling. Place your fingers behind your head. Lift your knees toward your shape. They should be in an L-shape position. Now, lift the shoulder blades off the ground as if you are doing a regular crunch. Be sure not to pull on your neck. Now, move your right elbow toward your left knee by rotating your torso. At the same time, extend your right leg. Squeeze your abs for a one count, and return to the starting position. Repeat to the other side, bringing your left elbow to your right knee while extending your left leg.
This exercise is sometimes called hanging leg raises, though that is a slightly different exercise. To do the captains chair leg lift, start by standing on the chair (there are small foot pads at the bottom to help you do get up), and grab the hand grips to hold your body steady. Your elbows will be resting on the pads, arms in an L-position. Your back will be pressed against the back of the chair and your legs should be hanging freely. Now, by contracting your abs, slowly raise your knees upward toward your chest. Pause for a count. Slowly lower your your legs to the starting position. Be sure not to swing your legs to create momentum. Your abs should do all of the work.
To do an exercise ball crunch, sit on the ball as if you were sitting on a chair. Now, lean back slowly while allowing your feet to walk forward until the ball is below your lower back and you are facing upward. Your legs should be at a 90-degree angle with the top of your legs parallel to the floor. Keeping your head in a neutral position, place your hands across your chest and raise your chest by squeezing your abs. Squeeze your abs hard for a count, and slowly lower your body back to the starting position. Note that your chin shouldn't touch your chest during this exercise.
To do this exercise, you should lie on the floor (or exercise bench) facing the ceiling. Now, with your legs straight, lift them so your body forms a 90 degree angle, with your upper body on the floor and your legs pointing up. You should keep your fee together and your legs only slightly bent. Now, lift your hips off the floor a few inches by contracting your abs while pressing your lower back against the floor at the same time. Your legs should travel almost straight up. Again, hold the position for a count before you slowly return to the starting position.
To do the plank, start by lying on the floor on your belly (the one we are getting rid of). Now, put your forearms on the floor beneath your chest. Push off the floor on to your toes so that your body weight is completely on your toes and forearms. The position you should be in is similar to a push-up position. Tighten your midsection while holding your body firm (in a straight line) like, well, a wooden plank. Hold the position for a set amount of time (based on your workout plan), and then return to the starting position.
