Build Your 6-Pack’s Support Cast

Personal trainer James Ellis targets your hip flexors – the muscles made famous by Brad Pitt in Fight Club.



Flutter Kicks

Lie on your back with your feet and head slightly lifted and your hands beneath your lower back for support. Raise your left leg by 30cm for a count of two, then lower it as you lift the right leg, again for two. That’s one rep. Perform 15.



Flexor Splits

This time, move your legs horizontally outwards for a count of two and then inwards for a count of two. Repeat 15 times, rest for 60sec, then complete two more rounds of the superset. Just as well you’re already lying down.
