Everyone covets defined abs, and the frog pelvic tilt will help you get there. The exercise comes from Pasadena-based fitness expert, video host and teacher Tracey Mallett (www.traceymallett.com). Mallett is the founder of Booty Barre, a technique that combines elements of dance, yoga and Pilates to strengthen and stretch the body. No prior experience in any of those disciplines is necessary, but maintaining good form is. Make sure that the spine, neck and head are aligned and that the movements are slow and deliberate.
What it does: The move targets the internal and external obliques on the sides of the abdomen as well as the transverse abdominis, which is below the internal obliques. Concentrate on the quality of the exercise, maintaining good form, rather than quantity.
