Work Your Abs on Your Way to Work
The average American spends an hour each day commuting to work -- so why not find a way to work your abs on the way to work?
The Daily Beast consulted with a few fitness experts and came up with 8 easy ways to exercise on your commute. We particularly liked their "Commuter Crunch" because it's doable on the subway and at your desk. Plus, who doesn't love great abs?
Start by sitting in a neutral position, with your feet hip-width apart and flat on the floor. "Keeping your shoulders and neck relaxed, contract the lower abdominal muscles," says Stone. "Hold the lower abdominal contraction and engage your upper abs. Gently round the lower back and move your ribcage down toward your hips. Hold the contraction for 8 to 10 seconds, breathing normally, and return to a neutral sitting position. Repeat 8 to 12 times or until muscle fatigue."
