Six-pack Secret: Slow-burn Crunches

Why it’s Her Fave: “Keeping tension on the muscles during each rep maximizes the amount of work your abs do.”

How to do it: Perform a crunch, taking three counts to come up while fully exhaling. Squeeze and hold at the top for three counts, then inhale and come back down to the start position in three counts.

Quick tip: “Control your breathing throughout the exercise, squeezing your abs hard at the top. To work the obliques, add a slight twist to the movement on each side.”
