Stretch yourself out for tighter tummy muscles.
Lie back on the floor knees raised. Support your head in one hand and stretch your other arm out aiming your hand in a straight line past the top of your knee. Now breathe in deeply, then exhale as you pull in your abs trying to keep a feeling of a flat and taught tummy.
This exercise is a double whammy, so get ready for part two. . .
Now in the same starting position as the previous exercise use your abs to lift you into a curl with your eyes focussed on a spot above the raised hand. Curl in one nice smooth movement, bringing the knee closest to your hand in towards your chest. Try to feel your pelvic bone following your knee into the curl.
Smoothly return to the starting position and do 4 reps. Slowly build up to doing two sets of 8. Repeat, swapping legs and arms to tone the other side.
Nicki's Tip: The focus of this exercise is to keep a flat tummy throughout so keep the movements smooth and flowing with no jerky or sudden movements.
