    Exercise

  • 1
    Put your body into push-up position. Your knees and your hands should be on the floor. Hold in your stomach and lift your knees off of the ground so that your whole body is off of the floor and your head neck, shoulders and behind are all lined up. Hold up your body for 10 seconds and carefully lower yourself to the floor. To challenge yourself, lift yourself into plank position and lift your right arm out in front of you for 10 seconds. Lower your arm and raise your left arm in front of you for 10 seconds. As you get more comfortable, increase the length of time that you are in the position. Do 10 sets.

    Lay flat on your back with your legs straight and your toes facing the ceiling. Place your hands under your buttocks for additional support and lift both legs in the air simultaneously. Your bottom should come off the floor slightly. Slowly lower your legs down to the floor. Do 10 sets.

    Sit down on the floor with your knees bent and the bottom of your feet on the floor. Place a medicine ball to the left of you. Without rotating your head, neck and hips, pick up the medicine ball off of the floor and move it to the right side. The only part of your body that should be rotating is your abdominals. Continue moving the medicine ball from side to side for 2 minutes.

    Lay flat on your back. Using your abdominal muscles to pull you up, lift your head off of the ground about 5 inches. You will know that you are doing the exercise properly when you begin to feel your abdominal muscles tighten. Hold the position for 30 seconds. Continue for 10 sets.

    1. Agree with abdominal exercise machines. I had one before and dang! it didn’t flatten my stomach. Calorie control is important. Crunches can’t help much as well, crunches can tone abs or strengthen abdominal muscles but it can’t really help in losing belly fats.

    2. if you eat daily sweet things then you put more weight. Actually exercise is the main process to reduce your body fat
