Go ahead and consciously uncouple with your boring abs routine.

They're tight, they're toned, they're... now yours.

All you need are these abs moves from our cover star's trainer, Tracy Anderson, founder of the Tracy Anderson Method.

Complete three sets, three times a week, and hot diggity damn, get sculpted from every angle.

Side lift to rolling plank

Lie on your right side, legs straight, your weight on your right elbow. Lift your left leg up to the ceiling (a), then rise onto your right foot and both forearms to roll into a low plank, keeping your left leg out to the side (option to lower it) (b).

Reverse the movement to return to start. That's one rep; do 30. Switch sides. (Get the secret to banishing belly bulge from WH readers who've done it with Take It All Off! Keep It All Off!)

Plank up-down

Start in a pushup position, hands under your shoulders and body in a straight line (a). Lower onto your right forearm (b), then your left forearm (c), keeping your hips as still as possible.

Reverse the movement to return to start. That's one rep; do 30, switching the order of your arms as you go.

Wide-split crunch

Lie on your back with your legs extended and feet separated more than shoulder-width apart (a).

Place your hands behind your head, then lift your shoulder blades off the floor to curl into a crunch, keeping your lower back on the floor (b).

Reverse the movement to return to start. That's one rep; do 30.
