Check it out: [bctt tweet="The One Ab Exercise You Need To Start Doing Now!"] The Crab Twist -- Do 10 reps on each side
- Start in a seated position with your right leg bent, and right foot flat on the floor. Extend your left leg long at a diagonal and reach your right hand toward the ceiling, shifting weight into your left hand.
- As you exhale, press into your left hand, lifting your seat and left leg off the floor at the same time.
- Twist through your core and reach your right hand to touch your left toe. Then, with control, lower back to the floor to return to your starting position.
- That’s 1 rep, do 10. Then switch sides. If you time, repeat both sides one to two more times.
