To FIRM Abdomen…

Lie on your back on the floor with knees bent, feet flat on the floor. With arms straight out in front, slowly raise your body to a 45-degree angle and hold for five seconds. Gradually lower your body to the floor one vertebra at a time, starting with the small of your back. Keep your back flat and your stomach in as you go down. Do five times to start, building up to as many as you can. Don't worry it will get easier as you work.
