What are some ab workouts that WORK?!?!? lol

I am needing to tone up my abs and love handles. What are some exercises that actually show results? I cannot go to a gym or run or jog. I have my living room, an elliptical, and an ab circle pro (which I don't think works lol).

  • "Abs are made in the kitchen" eat clean and you will see the results you want.

  • I had a friend who trained me for a while- it was her specialty. I got pretty good results from doing ab workouts on an exercise ball. You have to really work it. Do a lot of cardio, too, and walk, walk, walk- pull your abs in tight while you walk. I get what the "Abs are made in the kitchen" poster means. There is no way you can see the muscle tone in your abs if it is under a layer of fat- not bashing- just being honest (you wouldn't be able to see my muscles these days.) Good luck. I'll be watching to see if there are good tips posted here.

  • Crunches, core exercises like pilates and yoga, there are a lot of really good poses.

  • No, seriously. Abs are made in the kitchen, haven't you ever heard that before?
