Tough Abdominal Exercise

I haven't even tried this one. I saw it at the gym today.
Use the machine with the arm rests where you can bring your legs up. Another person holds a bar perpendicular to you and at the height of the upper part of your hip. Be careful not to scrunch your shoulders. Bring your legs up straight and over the bar to the right. Return your legs to starting position. bring your legs up and over the bar to the left.
That will rip up your abdominal muscles.

Simple Standing Lower Abdominal Exercise

Stand with your legs shoulder-width apart and slightly bent. With your lower abdominal muscles, curve your hips forward and then return to the starting position. Notice how difficult it is to do this using your abdominal muscles. Perform four sets of ten repetitions.
