This exercise from the abs workouts will help built rectus abdominis stronger and, leaner.

This workout is pretty straight forward if you have the abs rocker just grab the bars in each hand, contract them and rock forward. Make sure the movement comes from abs and not the frictional momentum. Release and repeat for 10-12 times.
