The Hundred
The name for the exercise originated from somewhere, but the origin is still somewhat unknown in the fitness circles. However, this is referred to as the exercise for the abs where you have to first lie down flat on your back. Then, with all the power you can muster, lift your head and the upper part of your shoulders a little but the lower back should still be in contact with the surface. Simultaneously, you have to lift both the legs about a foot up in the air, without bending them. This is perfect for developing abs because the entire strength is suddenly concentrated on your lower back and hip region.

After the crunches, the planks are the exercise which wins the spot for being the best exercise for lessening the fat around the stomach. Planks are hard to do as well and the first one might not last more than ten seconds. You have to lie down, this time on your stomach. Then, with the force of your elbows and forearms in touch with the surface and your toes, lift your entire body in midair. Keep it there for a while and try to increase time as you can.

Dieting does help to reduce the fat around the stomach but if you want a lean body and a tucked in tummy, better take note of all these exercises and try to do at least one daily.
