You can use the boat pose to tone and strengthen the muscles of your abdomen. Start by sitting on your bottom with your knees bent and your feet planted flat on the floor. Put your arms straight out in front of you with your palms facing each other. Make sure to tighten our abs throughout the exercise. Recline as you slowly lift your legs, but keep them bent at first. When your torso reaches a 45 degree angle with the floor, slowly straighten your legs and point your toes. Hold this pose for 20 seconds. Now bend your knees and come to your original position.
