Her exercises hit the ab muscles in all angles so you will get a ripped look. “It’s not just about the front of the abs, the rectus abdominis.

To follow Fox’s footsteps, lie face up on the floor with your knees bent and place your heels on top of a bench.

If you do that every night, you’ll see results.”

The star of Cat-Woman relies on one method that is super-effective called The Rocky. “It targets all of your abs—mid, low, and obliques—to lengthen your core, with beautiful definition,” Nat Bardonnet, Berry’s trainer told Health during an interview.

To do this move, start by lying face up on a bench, hands gripping it, with legs together and raised to 90 degrees so feet are up towards the ceiling. Use core strength to lift your butt off the bench. Slowly lower your butt down, followed by legs, bringing them to about a 30-degree angle. Be sure to keep your lower back pressed firmly into the bench. Raise legs up, returning to start, to complete one rep.
