I like to think of myself as a relatively healthy person. I go to the gym, do yoga and I even actually enjoy a good run, believe it or not. But when it comes to ab work, there's nothing I hate more than crunches. I get it - to get the flat abs, a la Gisele, you need to put in the work and strengthen that core. And while I'm reluctantly willing to suck it up and suffer for the sake of a firm tummy, I have very little patience for the amount of time it actually takes to start seeing results.
Since I know I'm not alone, here are some quick ways to fake flat abs. Of course, none of this should be done in lieu of actual exercise, but if you're in a time crunch - as in you have two days before you have to be in a bikini - then here are 7 tricks to try.
