The following exercises should be avoided by women:

Replace it with the “vacuum” exercise.
Suck your stomach inside as much as you can. Hold it for a few seconds and relax.
An extension is an exercise where you bend your body on a special sloped bench, which is why when done, leads to an increase in your side abs and waistline will only get bigger.
Replace it with the plank.
This is the best alternative to get a flat tummy. This is a simple exercise that can be done easily at the gym and at home. Stretch your body above the floor standing on your elbows and toes. Hold on to it for a minute.
Squats with heavy weights
