A pudgy tummy has become a problem for most of the women, especially after giving birth. Often times, it’s a lot difficult to get rid of those with all the pending jobs women do. She works at the office, she’s a mom at home. How would you think she’d have time to lose those flabs?
But if you’re a woman, and have already decided to lose weight, it is important to learn some tummy exercises. While men’s health programs aim to develop a “six-pack” abs, women’s goal is to get a firmer and tighter tummy.
The first thing you should understand is that these tummy exercises is just part of a bigger picture of losing weight and getting healthy. Even if you do a lot of crunches every day, if you’re not exercising the rest of the body and eating healthful foods, you sure won’t get your desired weight.
To get rid of the layer of fat which covers your abs, here are two tummy exercises that will help you do so. First is what we call “the crunch.” It is a small movement which will have great results if done efficiently. You need to lie on your back with bent knees. Remember to keep your feet and back flat and have your shoulders width apart. Then, raise your upper body a few inches from the floor, descend back down, and repeatedly do so. Exhale as you go down to learn to exercise breathing.
Another effective tummy exercise is the “Ball Crunch.” You will need a large blow-up ball which can be bought in Wal-Mart for about $10-$20. The aim of this exercise is to balance your body while sitting in the edge of the ball. Your bum should be placed on the edge which looks like you’re almost falling off.
If you do these tummy exercises for twenty minutes a day, a tighter tummy can be achieved. Of course, do not forget to combine these with good diet and a cardio exercise program so you’d feel sexier and healthier in no time.
