Those god forsaken pooches, muffin tops and spare tires are the bane of most girl’s existence when they are in search of a flat stomach. Not only are doughy torsos an especially bad place to be carrying extra weight due to the damage it does to your health, but it can also be highly damaging to one’s self-esteem as well. But don’t worry, if you’re generally fit and just want to whittle away on this one area here are some ways how to get a flat stomach. Bear in mind, these aren’t a substitute for regular exercise, you know better than that. You should be getting in a good workout, at least, three times a week. These moves are for your mid drift if it needs a little extra TLC. When using these moves remember that all should be done in three sets of 8 to 15 depending on what your body can handle. Unless you want to have eventually washboard abs that can withstand being shot with a cannonball, doing much more than that is kinda beating a dead horse with a stick. Also try to treat these exercises like a first date and take it slow, your stomach muscles will be worker harder that way.
One way as to how to get a flat stomach is to start with a golden oldy. Sit-ups have been a long time abdominal exercise classic, but there is a right and a wrong way to do them. And wouldn’t you know it, you probably learned that wrong way back in gym class from when you were a kid. You probably already know the basic position but just in case, lie on your back with your knees bent so your feet are flat on the floor. Many people think that their feet need to be held down and will tuck them under a piece of furniture or have someone hold them which is incorrect. By doing that you’re redistributing the areas that will be doing the work and no longer are focusing on the abdomen the way you should be. Remember when your gym teacher would say, “pretend the bottoms of your feet are glued to the floor”? That part is actually correct, and you work more muscle if there’s nothing helping you hold them in place. Secondly, traditionally people used to interlock their fingers behind their heads which are just straight-up wrong and you risk straining your neck that way. Instead, cross your arms across your chest. Use your abdominal muscles to pull your body into a sitting position and use them to lower slowly you back into a resting position.
