How To Do:

  • Be in a table top position and make sure that the back is straight and the hands are under knees, hips and shoulder.
  • Instead of lifting your leg upwards, you cross it behind your leg still in table top form, almost tucking your knee under your planted leg’s knee, tapping your toe on the ground.
  • Then with your core engaged, slowly kick out this leg parallel towards the floor and to the side.

A double criss cross is very effective in tightening the stubborn fat that forms a lump at the end of your stomach. It also tones your upper abdomen muscles that tighten the entire skin on the belly.

How To Do:

  • Lie down flat on your back and put your arms behind your head.
  • Bend your knees at 90 degree angle and raise them off the floor so that your legs are parallel to the ground.
  • Now, gently shift your left elbow towards your right knee by bending them both towards each other.
  • Do the same for the other side with your right elbow and left knee.
  • Pull in your stomach as you do this and do not put any pressure on your neck.
  • Do this 20 times in three sets for best results.
