If you want to flatten your abdominal area, here are some abdominal exercises to try:
air bike - lie on your back on a mat with your knees up, hands clasped behind your back. "Pedal" each leg like a bike, with your knee toward your stomach.
alternate heel touchers - lie on back on the mat, with knees up; touch the back of your heels by lifting your torso. Touch your heels, your hands approx. 3-5 inches above the floor. Alternate each heel. This will work your abdominal muscles.
Barbell ab rollout - Use an Olympic barbell, with 5 to 10 lb. barbells on each side. Bend down and hold the barbell and roll out the barbell ahead of you with a slight arch in your back with your toes on the floor; keep abs tight.
To work your upper abs, you can do reps of 25 crunches on an exercise ball. With your feet flat on the floor, hands clasped behind your head, push the ball back until your lower back and hips are supported by the ball. Exhale and lift your upper body at a 45 degree angle.
You can also use an exercise ball to work out your obliques, the muscles on the sides of your stomach. Lying on your back again knees bent feet on floor, with your hands clasped behind your head. Touch your elbows and lift your opposite knee, do 25 reps.
