6 Moves to Get Crop-Top-Worthy Abs
Abs are back. Here, the only moves you need for a killer core
In order to do this move without arching your back, you need to have every part of your abs engaged, which protects your spine while also helping to firm your belly.
Bonus zones: Glutes and chest
"In a sitting position, loop the center of a band around the instep of one shoe, foot flexed, and hold a band end in each hand. Get into the tabletop position with your hands under your shoulders and your knees under your hips. Extend your legs behind you, keeping your back straight, your abs tight and your head neutral.
Bend your banded leg and bring your knee underneath you and into your chest (image A). Extend it away from you, pressing against the band while keeping your hips square (image B). Do 15-20 reps, each leg. As you extend your leg behind you, remember not to arch your back."
