Super fly crunchTatiana Ayazo/Rd.com Sarah Bowmar began her career in digital marketing but soon realized that her main passion was fitness and helping others also become fit. Bowmar says there was one workout that had the most dramatic effect on her body: "It's called the super fly crunch, and it targets your abs," she says. You'll need bands or a cable strength training machine to pull this one off. Assume a plank position, and place your feet into handles of the band or cable machine, suspending your legs off the ground. Now bring your knees forward to your chest in a crunch. Start out slow—you may only be able to do a few repetitions of this demanding move at first. Want more from Bowmar? Follow her fitness Instagram.

Tuck jumpsTatiana Ayazo/Rd.com Dietitian Cassie Barnard is a Pilates instructor based in Australia and she has the perfect flat belly exercises for you. But the one that changed her body was tuck jumps. "Tuck jumps are an amazing exercise because they work your whole body with an element of cardio. Glutes, quads and hamstrings are the primary muscles in this exercise while also challenging your core. I find jumping exercises are a great way to keep unwanted fat away from my belly!" said Barnard. Start by standing with your legs shoulder-width apart, toes turned out slightly. Bend at the knees and sink down to a squat position, thighs parallel to the ground and taking care that your knees don't extend past your toes. Now spring upward and bring your knees up to your chest and don't let your elbows fall below your knees. Land and then sink back to a squat position. Try doing three sets of eight repetitions each.
DeadliftsTatiana Ayazo/Rd.com Certified personal trainer Tana Cogan is one of the most popular fitness models on Instagram. The fitness expert says the one move that changed her body was the deadlift. "Deadlifts have been an amazing compound workout, which means they work more than just one area. They target my hamstrings, quads, glutes, back and core. I'll never skip my deadlifts on leg day," said Cogan. Stand with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart in front of a barbell. (Start with a weight you can manage easily until you perfect the form, she says.) Sink down in a squat, knees over your toes, head up, back flat, and grasp the barbell with your hands slightly wider than your shoulders. Lift the weight up using your legs and core. Lower back down, then repeat. Try three sets of ten reps.
