We thought we’d share a simple ab workout that you can do at home. Just make sure you check with your physician before beginning any regular exercise program.

Jeffrey Beck, exercise therapist at Intermountain Medical Center, highlights five different types of ab exercises:

  1. Leg raises

  2. Toe touches

  3. Side crunches

  4. Hip thrust exercises

  5. Alternating reverse crunches

Give it a try, and note that exercise must be combined with good nutrition to maintain a healthy lifestyle. ​
