From Rihanna to Beyoncé and Rita Ora - it seems you can not move without seeing a celebrity wash board stomach in a crop top at the moment.

And with bikini season just around the corner as well, we figure it's time to put down this bowl of mash and start trying to rediscover our abs.

But where to begin?

We asked celebrity trainer Elia Siaperas from Labspa.co.uk for some quick at-home exercises to get you looking ab-ulous (see what we did there? Chuckle).

5 easy ab exercises


Tip 1:
Kneel on the floor in the table position and rest your weight on your hands and knees. Keeping your back flat, breathe in and push your tummy out at the same time. Finish off by breathing out whilst pulling your stomach in. Hold for three seconds and repeat for a minute.

Tip 2:
Lie face down on the floor and extend your legs. Prop your body up with your forearms and slowly lift your tummy and legs so that only your forearms and the balls of your feet touch the floor. Next, contract your tummy muscles and try to hold for 7-10 seconds. The more you do this the easier it will get so gradually work your way up to a minute, day by day.

Tip 3: 
Sit on the floor with your legs bent, feet flat on the floor and lean back slightly. Using your abdominal muscles, try to keep your body stable and hold for 20-30 seconds. Repeat 15 times. 

Tip 4:
Lie flat on your back and slowly bring your right leg up to your chest, whilst keeping the other leg as close to the floor as possible. Hold you right leg in this position for 20 seconds. Repeat with the other leg, holding for 20 seconds. Repeat these stages 5 times.

Tip 5:
Sit upright in a chair and hold onto the arms at the front of chair. Breathe out and slowly lift your knees up toward your chest. Hold your position for three seconds and then return to the starting position. Do this for one minute.
