Even if you think you've done every abdominal exercise under the sun, you'll learn some new ones here. This 30-minute workout starts with a 4-minute rhythmic warm-up, such as one you'd do for an aerobic dance class. You may wonder why you're warming up your arms and legs for an abdominal workout. Surprise--this workout targets the abs, but it uses the arms and legs to do so. This remarkably creative and varied workout has 2 minutes of interesting standing ab work, then 20 minutes on the mat (which is plenty). Even after you lie down, you're not doing ordinary crunches. Sometimes you work your abs in conjunction with pushups, or from a side-lying position where you kick out one leg and lift your upper body at the same time, crunching your obliques. This is an especially good ab workout for experienced exercisers who think they've done them all. Lots of close-ups of instructor Dawn's perfect abs. --Joan Price
