Time to get that flat belly back
There is always a solution to every great problem and a big belly isn’t something too big of a problem at all. There are plenty of ways to get that flat belly again. We’ve compiled a list of 14 exercises which specifically ensures your belly becomes flat again. Coupled with a clean and healthy diet, you’re gonna have to start writing a farewell letter to your big belly pretty soon.
First, start by standing with proper posture. Your feet has to be shoulder-width apart. Now lower yourself until your palms are touch the ground, about shoulder-width apart. The palms have to be flat on the floor. Kick both your legs backward to get into the pushup position. Do one push up then quickly reverse your legs back to the squat position and perform a jump to standing position. That’s 1 rep. Repeat as many as you can in under 10 minutes without slouching your back or dropping the pushup form.
Get to the start of a pushup. Your neck, back, butt, and legs must trace a straight line. Spine must always be neutral. Tighten your core and butt. Lift one foot off the ground and drive the knee towards your chest. Tap the ground with the foot and go back to starting position. Do the same with other leg. Repeat as many as possible in under 10 minutes. If the form starts to break, stop.
Lift and Twist Crunch
On a yoga mat or floor, lie on your back and bring the hands behind the neck. Lift the head and twist your upper body to one side and bring your elbows to the opposite knee. Inhale and lower back to starting position. You can begin to extend one leg out as you continue. Alternate with each leg and each side.
Grab a dumbbell that is not too light or too heavy. Go into the pushup position. Maintain the straight line from neck to ankle. Tighten your core and your butt. Spread your feet until they are slightly wider than hip-width. Turn your feet and have them both point to one direction.
With your free palm flat on the floor, perform a row with the hand with the dumbbell. Do this slowly but consistently. Don’t over twist. If the form starts to sag, drop the dumbbell and stop.
