There seems to be a countless and totally endless number of adverts on the internet and in magazines about the best way to get a flatter stomach........... and Fast !!! Most of them make quite ludicrous statements and I’d like to share with you why I think so.
First of all, It’s IMPOSSIBLE to spot reduce fat. That's a fact....
Abdominal Exercises are NOT the answer
Emphasizing too much on stomach toning exercises will actually hinder you from getting a flat stomach. To effectively reduce belly fat, you need to lose body fat from ALL over the body. The best, and proven, way to do this is by concentrating on complete body workout routines. In this way, you will see full body weight loss whilst building total body strength that will enable you to burn calories more efficiently and get the desired results from belly specific exercises in the fullness of time. Belly exercises should be the LAST exercises that you perform to finally hone your stomach.
High intensity training and strength training combined with a healthy eating plan is the most effective way to give you a flatter stomach.
You can, and should, do many exercises that increase your spinal strength and stability.
Here are just a few from my list of some of the best exercises to help make your belly flatter.
- Push-ups - Standard push-ups are the best to start with and target your entire body. Once you acquire enough strength, you can vary the them. Inclined push-ups, diamond push-ups, one-handed push-ups are the various intense push-ups you could try to get a flat belly.
- Squats - Squats are one of the best exercises to target your lower body. You will gain more strength and it will give you a good shape to your belly, butt, and thighs plus it increases your spinal strength. Adding weights will make the reps more intense.
- Lunges - Lunges are also good for targeting your lower body. You can try forward, backward and side lunges and add weights for better results.
