Fit abs

Fat around the midriff is very common among young people. Regardless of body type, fat accumulates easily around the belly and waist.  Those who are committed to a regular workout routine can successfully reduce their circumference by several inches if they combine a routine of intense cardio (preferably intervals) and ab exercises. 

When the usual crunch and sit-up do not seem to bring you results, you may want to try exercises that target the lower part of your abs. Any anatomy book will tell you that there is no such thing as "upper" and "lower" ab muscles. Instead, ab muscles run vertically along the length of the adbomen and are layered. Therefore, you should try to incorporate exercises that target a variety of points on your abdomen, such as leg raises, reverse crunches in addition to crunches and sit-ups. A fun and effective exercise is called the "Hollowman:" lie flat on your back and raise your legs and shoulders several inches off the floor. Try to hold the pose for 30 seconds, relax and repeat.
