Dance Abs

No more crunches and sit-ups. Now you can dance your way to tighter abs!

"Regular crunches are effective, but they get boring after a while," says fitness instructor Ben Roberson. "To tone those abs, you need to do a lot of cardio, especially to engage the core. When you do cardio with the core engaged, you burn a lot of calories and you get a good ab workout," he adds.

Here are a few dance abs moves:

  • Standing upright, contract your abdominal muscles as if you were doing a crunch against a wall. Bring your lower abs up toward your chest while leaning over slightly.
  • Do the same motion, while lifting one leg at a time.
  • With arms at 12pm and 6pm, shift your body to one side as you "turn the wheel" then back the other way. Do repetitions slow then faster.
  • Do a simple "twist" on the classic samba. Twist your upper body while doing the samba with your legs for double the workout.
