The move: Attitude Lift and Crunch with Reach
Why it's so great: "It hits the deep-set ab muscles that serve as your flat-belly girdle," Anderson says.
How to do it: Lie face up with knees bent, right arm extended overhead, and a 3-pound weight in right hand. Rest left hand on back of head (A). Crunch up; lift left leg. Crunch up more; bring right hand and left leg toward each other (B). Lower torso; tap left toes to floor. This is 1 rep. Do 30 reps; rest for 30 to 60 seconds. Switch sides and repeat. Do it six days a week for rock-hard results.
