Quickie, daily ab workout?

I'm walking and/or swimming almost daily, but know I should work in some ab stuff. Anyone know of a FREE, quick, daily ab workout that's posted online? Someone suggested, but it's not free.

Do some Pilates "hundreds", very effective. I dont know of an online spot but ask anyone who does Pilates how to do it, or take a couple of classes to learn the basics.

Yoga abs

You can also do yoga, there are a lot of yoga routines for the abs that are as effective as pilates -- but they take a lot longer to make a difference.

Also keep in mind your abs need a day of rest between work just like any other muscle group.

The zip up. I do this while I'min work becuase I sit at the desk all day.

Start with a kegal squeeze with your pubic floor. squeeze that and continue to hold it whilie you continue to squeeze the rest of your abs, as if your zipping them up. once your abs are fully zipped working from the bottom up, then it's time to unzip them from the top down. Do as man reps as you can.

I love it!!!!

My 16-yo son showed me one he calls "bridge." No idea where he got it. Position as if for full men's pushup, except on elbows rather than hands, with forearms resting on floor. Hold. Start with 30 secs rpt 3 times; build up to 2 min rpt 3 times.

I've been using this because, having cracked my tailbone, I can't do Pilates. But I highly recommend the Pilates abs exercises (carefully formed). I used Brooke Siler's _Pilates Body_ (book) and old dance training to get the form right, and my 20-minute routine (using many but not all of Siler's suggested exercises--some are unsafe IMO) I made significant changes in my posture, muscle tone, flexibility, and strength--and enough of a difference in my physical appearance that I got "How have you lost so much weight?" within three weeks.
