No need to run out and buy an Ab Lounge or other fancy equipment meant to help you develop your abdominal muscles. You can do these exercises right at home, without any special equipment. However, you should note that the best way to get a flat stomach is to combine ab exercises with other activities, such as walking. Walking an hour a day (even in 10 to 15 minute spurts at different times) will go a long way toward maximizing your tummy workout.
1.Standing push-ups. Do these in front of a wall at home, or even outside against a tree. Stand with your feet apart at hip-width. Your hands should go on the wall at shoulder height. Contract your abs and hold them in throughout the exercise. As you inhale, slowly lower your chest toward the wall. Keep you heels on the ground as you do this. When your nose is just inches from the wall, begin to exhale, pushing away until you have returned to your starting position. Build up to 15 repetitions. This will strengthen your arms as well.

2.Standing side crunches. Stand with knees slightly bent, placed hip-width apart. Form soft fists and bend your elbows, bringing your fists next to each other at the center of your chest. Take a deep breath to begin. Exhale and bend from the waist, lowering your right rib toward your right hip bone. Squeeze your abs as you do this. Inhale yourself back up to start, and then exhale to the left. You can do this alternating for 1 to 2 minutes.
