Bicycle Crunches. This exercise is highly regarded as the most effective out of all the workouts for abs as it works both the upper and lower abdominals. It is known to tense the abdominal muscles the most. The key to doing this exercise correctly is to focus on your abdomen and your breathing.

Do the same thing to the other side, all the while making sure that you don’t let your torso drop back down.
