Well, it's really hard to spot tone. Believe me, if I could, I wouldn't have bat wings or that pooch under my belly button!

A few moves I would recommend:

Standing oblique crunches:

Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Reach your left arm out to the side and your right arm straight up over your head. Bring your right knee up and your right arm down together -- your knee and elbow will meet in the middle.

Do eight reps, then reverse. Keeping your left arm straight out will help you keep your balance. Keep your abs engaged to provide stability. Go nice & slow and don't rush.

Steering wheel crunches:

Sit on the floor with your knees bent. Engage your abs (think of pushing your abs against your spine) and sit as straight as you can. Lean back so that your feet are off the ground, toes pointed. You should feel a contraction throughout your abs to keep your balance in this spot. Once you have your balance established, hold up your hands like you're holding a steering wheel, and turn left, then middle, then right. Do 12 reps.

Free weight crunches:

Hold a weight in each hand (2-5lb) and stand with your feet shoulder width apart. With hands hanging down at your side, slowly let the weight of your right hand pull you down to the right. You should feel a big stretch in your left obliques. Using your abs (make sure they are tight and engaged) pull yourself back up. Repeat to the left side. Do 8 reps on each side.

Good luck!
