Get a Flatter Tummy Naturally

As women, a lot of our weight can be centered in our tummies.  Even if we eat a healthy diet, we can still have belly bulge.  Well the good news is that there are many helpful belly targeting exercises we can do that can help to flatten and tone our tummies.  Follow the following helpful tips to work that belly.

Altered Sit-ups

This sit-up modifies the standard sit-up just a little bit.  Start lying down, legs extended on the floor, and begin doing a sit-up as you normally would, but this time rock your legs forward with knees bent, making sure to get your lower back off of the floor.  Then return to the starting position.  Do about 10-15  repetitions of these.

Working Your Sides

In this exercise, you start standing up, with your feet hip distance apart.  Turn out your right foot so that your toes are facing the side wall.  Then shift most of your weight onto your left leg.  Now raise your right arm and left leg with knee bent and have your right elbow meet your right knee.  It’s like doing crunches for your sides when you’re standing up.  Do as many as you can and make sure to alter sides.

Plank

You may think that planking is meant to target arm strength, but there’s more to it than that.  It can be difficult to target the lower part of our stomach, but this move targets that area.  Start out on the floor on all fours.  Then place elbows and arms on the floor in a 90 degree angle.  Now, lift up your midsection and shoot your legs to the back wall.  Hold for one minute.  Do three times a day.

A tight tummy can often make us feel confident because they look and feel better.  So try some of these exercises at home and see if you see results in a couple of weeks.
