A LOT OF US HAVE A CERTAIN AREA WE TRY TO TARGET WHEN WE'RE WORKING OUT.

THAT'S WHY OUR FITNESS EXPERT — YOU HAVE HIT ONE OF THESE AREAS.

IN YOUR LOWER 20s YOU MAY NOT HAVE HAD THE POOCH.

ONCE WE GET OLDER AND OUR METABOLISM SLOWS DOWN, FOR WOMEN THE BELLY IS A COMMON AREA FOR THAT FAT DEPOSIT.

WE'RE NOT DOING 100 CRUNCHES.

WE'RE DOING EXERCISES FORM OVER SPEED.

SLOWER IS BETTER MANY.

MINDY AND HEIDI ARE HERE TO HELP.

HEELS TO HEAVEN.

HEELS TO EARTH.

PUSH OUR HEELS UP AND SLOWLY BRING THEM DOWN.

WE'RE SLOWING THEM DOWN ON THE WAY DOWN.

YOU CAN SEE WE'RE NOT JUST LETTING THE FEET FLOP DOWN, REALLY FOCUSING ON THOSE LOWER ABS, PUSH AND DOWN.

NOW WE'LL HEAD AROUND THE WORLD BOTH WAYS.

CLOCKWISE, COME UP AND COUNTER CLOCKWISE.

THAT LOWER BELLY AREA HAS TO STABILIZE THE ABS.

YOU'RE ALMOST DRAWING CIRCLES WITH YOUR FEET.

NOW WE'LL COME TO A SEATED POSITION AND PUSH AND CRUNCH.

THIS IS WHEN YOU START TO FEEL THE BURN IN THAT LOWER BELLY AREA BUT YOU NOTICE WE'RE NOT DOING THEM QUICK.

WE'RE CONTROLLING THE FEET AND HOVERING THOSE HEELS.

LET'S HEAD TO THE SEVENUP CRUNCH.

WE'RE GOING TO CRUNCH IT IN, HOVER.

CRUNCH, HOVER.

WE ARE NOT PULLING ON OUR NECK.

WE'RE CALLING ON THE OBLIQUES AND YOUR SECOND TIME THROUGH YOU WOULD CROSS THAT OTHER LEG OVER JUST LIKE THIS.

WE'RE GOING TO FLIP OVER TO THE PLANK POSITION, THE ELBOW PLANK POSITION.

IT'S HARD TO TARGET THE LOWER ABS, SO WE WILL ADD THE PIKE, FLAT BACK.

YOU'LL FEEL THE BURN.

60 SECONDS WOULD BE ABOUT HOW LONG YOU WOULD DO EACH EXERCISE AND FINALLY PLANK ROLLS.

TAPPING THOSE HEELS.

COME ON.

THE PLANK ROLL.

NOW YOU'RE TAKING IT TOO FAR.

I DO THE PLANK ROLL.

IT WORKS.

BUT YOU'LL NOTICE WE DID ALL OF THOSE EXERCISES SLOPE AND CONTROL.

I SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE — I GOT TO GET 200 CRUNCHES.

IT'S NOT ABOUT HOW MANY YOU'RE DOING BUT THE CONTROLLED SPEED.

BREAKFAST IS YOUR LARGEST MEAL OF THE DAY AND DIN ARE IS THE SMALLEST.

I WOULD RECOMMEND GOING THROUGH THIS LIST TWICE.

AGAIN, FOCUSING ON 45 TO 60 SECONDS.

I'M READY FOR A CUPCAKE.
