The equipment: Beach towelThe trainer: Rona Lewis, a personal trainer in Los Angeles
The move: Roller abs
Difficulty: Easy to medium
Lie on a beach towel with your head slightly lower than the top of the towel. Grab the corners of the top of the towel in your hands and bring your fists right by your ears with elbows pointed towards the ceiling. Your head should be cradled by the towel. Now, using your abs, crunch your elbows up towards the ceiling; you'll feel it in your abs (without that telltale strain in your neck). Do 30 reps, working up to 50 (or until your abs are completely fatigued).
