With so many different types of ab excercises it’s tough to know the most effective way to flatten your tummy. But new research shows that adding definition to your stomach is easier than you many think. No need for hundreds of crunches or torso twists.

Instead, try techniques called “bracing” and “hollowing.” And one of the best parts about these exercises is they can be done just about anywhere – at work, standing in line at the store and even driving.

Here’s the scoop. To hollow, suck in your abs by pushing your belly bottom towards the back of your spine. To brace, elevate your pelvic muscles in a similar way as a Kegel exercise. Try incorporating these exercises into your daily routine to see if you notice any results!
