  • You have to work your lower abs to get a flatter stomach. Crunches alone won't do that. Try laying on your back and have your legs pointing straight up toward the ceiling, so you're in kind of an L shape. Use your abs and keeping your legs up the whole time kick your legs higher toward the ceiling so your butt jumps off the floor. Your knees might bend a little, its ok just keep them as straight as your can. Also, doing ab exercises on an ab ball really helps, because 1) it doesnt hurt your back like the floor and 2) you get more extension so it works your abs harder.

  • it could be the way you are doing your crunches. suck your tummy into the floor, it should not protrude out as you do a crunch. If it protrudes out while doing the crunches, you are just training the muscles to protrude outward.

  • You might also want to look at your diet. I have read quite a bit about how one can do all the crunches in the world, but if you are still eating alot of calories, the crunches won't do anything. Hope you get the results you want!!

  • Also - watch your sodium intake and drink your water to flush out your body. Don't give up!
