The following series of waist trimming exercises will help you get a flat belly in no time. Of course, a healthy diet, and a bit of cardio or HIIT exercise can help you lose excess fat even faster. If your goal is a flat belly, these moves will help you get there!
Side Plank With A Twist
Position yourself on your right side, resting on your right forearm, with left hand behind your head (See position A). While keeping hand on head, bring left elbow down towards the floor (See position B). Contract your obliques during this move. Return to your starting position, and repeat for a total of 15 reps; then, switch to your other side.
Lie on your back with arms by your sides. Place feet flat on the ground. Raise your chest up towards the ceiling (See Position A). Use your right hand to touch your right heel (See position B). Then, use your left hand, and touch your left heel (See position C). Alternate back and forth until you’ve completed 15 reps on each side.
Lie flat on your back. Place your arms over your head, and keep your legs straight (See position A). Now, bring your left leg up, and reach with your right arm and touch your foot; engage your abs (See position B). Return to your starting position, then repeat with your right leg up and touch your foot with your left hand (See Position C). Continue alternating from side to side until you’ve done 15 reps on each side.
V-Ups or Alternate Tuck-Ups
Lie on your back with your arms over your head. Keep legs straight (See position A). Raise both arms and both legs at the same time, bringing them towards each other. You should form a V shape (See position B). Slowly lower back to your original position on the floor, squeezing your abs as you go. Repeat until you’ve completed 15 reps. If this move is too difficult, use the alternate Tuck-Up position. It is done just like the V-Ups, but with your knees bent (See position C).
Start in a kneeling position, and bring your right leg straight out to the side. Put your left hand on the floor, and your right hand behind your head (See position A). Bring your right knee up towards your right elbow (See position B). Repeat for 15 reps, then switch to your other side for another 15 reps on that side.
Lie flat on your back. Place your hands behind your head, and raise your feet. Your legs should make a 90 degree angle. Bring your right elbow to your left knee, straightening your right leg at the same time (See position A). Hold this position for one second, then switch to your left elbow moving towards your right knee, and your left leg straightening (See position B). Alternate from side to side until you’ve complete 15 reps per side.
