Are you having issues with firming up your midsection, but not sure where to start? Have you seen some people doing partial sit-ups or crunches on the floor, but don’t know how? Then, I’m going to give you simple instructions over the next few weeks to cut down your waistline without killing yourself.



  1. Lie flat on your back with your knees bent and your feet on the ground.
  2. Gently place your fingertips behind your head with your elbows pulled back.
  3. Slowly press your ribs upward, pause at your highest position, then slowly return to the start position.
  4. For a challenge, extend your arms above your head.

This movement might be a bit remedial for some, but it is certainly fundamental to any workout program. Over the next couple weeks, I’ll shoot you a few other exercises to tighten up your stomach without flopping around on the floor for hours at a time.

Well, that’s all I have for you today! Be sure to tune in again this Thursday as I share another core exercise for you to use in your routine right now.
