  2. Summer Stomach
    Planks, crunches, Russian twist… They sound more like torture techniques than exercises. We’ll admit it. Even with a long winter, we still aren’t bikini ready but, we need to hit the beach NOW. We all want a flatter stomach, but how? Try these LAZY ways to look leaner and feel firmer; “no diet, exercise or spanx required”
