The V-shape upper-body; whether its girls with curves and a small waist line, or guys with a strong back and tight abs, sculpted trim tummies look hot on both guys and girls, and when you have a rocking set of abs they’ll sure be hard to resist grabbing on to.
What’s the hold up? Create the stomach of your dreams by doing these tricks and techniques to get rid of that muffin top and or bloat:
1 – Take fried salty, processed, sugary foods out of the mix.
2 – Scale back on your weekly alcohol consumption and portion sizes.
3 – Drink plenty of water consistently. Try not to gulp all at once, because you can only hydrate a little bit at a time, try drinking 4 ounces of water every hour.
4 – Eat fibrous foods to flush out your tummy!
Be More Body Conscious:
5 – Engage your core (regardless of it you in the gym working on your fitness or actually focusing on your abs) you will not only burn more calories, you’ll protect your back from injuries.
6 – In the gym do this by challenging your stability: start with alternatingly lifting 1 leg up while performing an exercise, work your way onto standing on a bosu ball or a wobble pad and eventually you will be able to kneel and even stand on a stability ball while performing exercises.
7 – Suck it in!! Throughout your day try to be conscious of your core and your posture, don’t stand or sit there with your belly sticking out. Remind yourself constantly and eventually it will become second nature, and help your posture.
Always consult your Doc before starting an exercise program, take breaks if you need to or modify the exercise to suit your level of fitness you can always work your way up to more reps and sets. Faster doesn’t always mean better, take it slow and controlled for some of the exercises. Remember that burning fat all over your body will help tone your stomach, but it doesn’t hurt to strengthen and build the muscles in that region!
