How to get abs for women

Abdominal hold – This kind of exercise is effective for targeting the lower portion of the belly.  To do the abdominal hold, you need to sit on the edge of a chair and place your hands on the edge of the chair with your fingers pointing towards your knees. Bring your toes 2 to 4 inches off the floor and tighten your abs. Then lift your butt off the chair.

Hold this position for as long as you can. Take rest then do it again. You’re actually lifting your own weight with the use of your arms when you do the abdominal hold. This tones, the abdominal muscles as well.

The V Ups –  I’ve seen a few female friends doing this one and at the beginning, this can be painful but later on it can give you the most toned belly. V ups are exercises that work on both the upper part and the abdominal muscles at the same time. It’s also good to strengthen the lower back muscles and thighs.

To do it, lie back with your legs extended and close together, toes should be pointed and your arms close to your side. Keep your legs straight and lift them up, at the same time, raise your upper body off the floor and reach your toes with your hands. Forming a letter V, squeeze your abdominal muscles as you reach your toes and then slowly release; lower yourself down to the starting position.

Jack Knife Sit Ups – This is a kind of sit up a little more complicated than the ordinary kind of sit up. Jackknife sit-ups involve all abdominal muscles.

To do this, you need to sit on the floor or mat. Lie with the hands to side then simultaneously raise your knees and torso until the knees and hips are flexed. Then return to the starting position with waist, hips, and knees are extended straight on the floor. This is kind of exercise is similar to V ups but with legs is blended.
