Placing a yoga block under your feet in this simple move is an excellent way to isolate and train your abdominal muscles. It helps you to relax your hip flexors so you can feel a stronger workout just in your abdominals.
Lie on your back on a padded surface or mat. Bend your knees, bringing the soles of your feet together. Rest the outer edges of your feet on the top of a yoga block. Allow your knees to fall out to the sides. Place your fingertips behind your head with your elbows pointed out to the sides.
