As they say, abs are made in the kitchen; your diet will affect your midsection more than your exercising. In addition, cardio will help reduce fat all over and ab exercises will help tone the muscles. Incline situps, roman chair, side bends (with dumbbells), and back extensions will help. Work all of your core, not just the frontal abs!
I did Hip Hop Abs for a while and it was Ok, but I've had much better luck with Zumba combined with simple ab exercises---most of which have come from Spark People's personal collection of fitness videos.

Since being diagnosed with PCOS, I have watched and felt with disgust, my mid-section get larger and larger. I know this is one of the fun side effects of PCOS, but you must admit, it's frustrating. Due to this increasing frustration, I was wondering how I could help curb the growing mid-section. Has anyone tried Hip Hop Abs? Looks like alot of work and challenging but curious if it works.
