    if u want to have sexy abs, the one thing u need to do is diet, 80% of gettin abs is eating well and not going to Mc every week, fruits and veggies and no fatty meat.. the best way to get abs is running, it is the best fitness way because it shapes your entire body.. my advise is to run 1 mile a day, i know it sounds a lot but really its not, it shouldnt take anyone more than 30 min, even if you go on a slower pace.. in a month u will be loving your body...

    Good luck

    God Bless

    yeah you may want an easier way but crunches will do the trick. I love crunches i do them often and it pays. You could try looking in fitness magazines and they usually show you like a routine that you can do to help your stomach and it's not always crunches. Good Luck hope this helps.
