Here’s an abs workout that hits every area of your midsection. It’s especially great for those days when you’re pressed for time.

Here are pointers for the first two exercises.

Sandbag Situp
Start in situp position while holding a sand bag over your chest with your arms straight. Hold in this position. As you come up, the sand bag should be almost overhead in the finish position.

Cocoons
Lay flat on your back with your arms extended behind your head and your feet slightly off of the ground. Pull your knees toward your chest, lift your back side off of the floor and lift your arms over your head as you perform a crunch.
