Fat-Fighting Move #3: The Sneaky Stomach Flattener Focuses on: Your abs and thighs

Sit tall, with your hips close to the edge of your chair, hands beside your hips, palms down. Bend your knees at about 90 degrees, and flex your feet, with your heels touching the ground. Keeping your back straight, lean back until your shoulder blades are touching the back of your chair (but don't rest on the chair, keep your abs drawn in tight and your spine straight). Then, draw your belly button into your spine and exhale while lifting your legs up (keeping them bent) to hip level. Lower back down slowly, without dropping your legs. That's one rep. Repeat this move 20 times. "This is a great exercise for the core muscles that you can do without having to lay on the ground. In a few weeks, your tummy will look much more toned and lean," says Castaneda.
