Stage № 3. Strengthen your abs
Cardio exercises will help you lose extra weight but won’t make the belly absolutely flat. You need a complex approach where you can both lose weight and strengthen your muscles.
The Vacuum is a great exercise. In order to do it, just breathe out all the air in your lungs, pull your abdominals in toward your spine and hold your breath for 15-20 seconds. Repeat this 10 times, 3-4 times a day and a few weeks later, you’ll notice that your waist has gotten smaller.
Plank. A simple but very effective exercise. Do it 2-3 times a day for 30 seconds, gradually increasing the duration. Aside from burning calories and making the abs stronger, it also makes the posture better and relieves back strain.
Stage № 4. Get muscle relief
Crunches. These exercises will make your abs and your core stronger. Strengthening your core will take pressure off of your other muscle groups. Try different types of crunches in order to develop your abs.
Leg raise. Lie on your back and put your hands on the floor for balance. Slowly raise your legs 10-15 times. You will begin to notice progress in just 30 days.
After a workout, take a cold shower. Low temperatures don’t just help to reduce the amount of lactic acid in the body that causes muscle pain, but it also burns additional calories by making the body work more to keep warm.
