Everything in the 21st century is accessible with the click of a mouse or a tap on the phone screen! Since people’s jobs back in the day weren’t all computer-related, things were extremely different. Everyone had to go outside and do some physical work in contrast to most work from home jobs in the post-pandemic world. The result? Sedentary lifestyles and obesity! Still, people crave for a chiseled body with perfect abs. But you need to work hard for it and indulge in the right ab exercises.
Often, we think that doing ab crunches is the only way to achieve a flat stomach, but popular celebrity fitness trainer Namrata Purohit has suggested some ab exercises without the crunches!
“Work those abs WITHOUT crunching. Still super intense. Try these and add them to your workout,” Purohit wrote on her Instagram page.
Namrata Purohit suggests you to start slow, with 1 set of 10-20 repetitions. Gradually increase the numbers and the sets.
This one works the muscles in your lower body – the abs, glutes and hamstrings; burns calories and also helps you improve your balance.

Do the toe taps with both the legs in this case. Remember to maintain the neutral alignment of the spine while performing these exercises. Keep your core engaged and don’t let the back extend. Proper inhalation and exhalation is the key to flexibility here.
Even though the exercise does make your lower abs burn after just a few repetitions, your abs aren’t the only portion of your body working hard. The fundamental bodyweight exercise known as the Bridge with Leg extension, works the legs and core.
It is a wonderful exercise to target your lower abs and develop six-pack abs. Additionally, there is less tension on your hands and elbows, making this the ideal low-stress method of developing six-pack abs.
While exercise is great, you also need to remember to pay attention to your diet!
