Exercises To Get Rid Of Muffin Top
The weight that’s around your mid section can be pretty difficult to get rid of. Anyone that has tried to get rid of a muffin top knows it takes a lot of dedication and hard work to have a flat stomach. If you are willing to tackle this wobbly stomach, use these tips along with a healthy diet(think nutrient-dense veg, high-quality protein and LOTS of water) and you might be on to a winner…
Get good abs with… crunches and a clean diet!
Begin by lying on your back with your knees bent at a 90o angle. Think of creating a concave stomach by pulling you belly button in towards your spine and then curl your truck up, keeping your head and neck tall and in line with your body. Keep pulling your navel in towards your spine during the whole movement. Do three sets of 25 reps.
Target your baby belly with… the tummy tucker.
Lay on the ground with your knees slightly bent, place your feet on the ground and place your hands on your stomach. Breath in, breath out and draw your navel in to your spine, aiming to pull your belly button into the floor. Hold for 10 seconds, then relax. Do one set of 5 reps, working up to 15.
Target love handles with… a one-legged plank hydrant.
Get into the plank with your hands on the floor. Pull one of your knees close to your chest then, without touching the floor, push your leg back out and up so it’s behind you at a 45o angle. Hold for two seconds, then bring the leg back into your chest. Do two sets of 10 reps on each leg.
Belly button fat:
Relieve stress and tone up with… the downward dog to plank sequence.
Start on all fours, with your wrists slightly in front of your shoulders. Separate your knees to hip-width apart and curl your toes under. Exhale, then lift your knees off the floor, reach your sit bones toward the ceiling, and straighten your legs in a downward dog position, pushing through your heels. Hold for five slow breaths. Inhale, then shift your weight forward into plank, with your core strong. Hold, then exhale and push into a downward dog. Do five rounds, holding each pose for around five breaths each but rest if you need to.
