Exercises to flatten stomach

When you lose weight, muscles relax. One way to get a great physique is by doing some strategic exercises. How? With isometrics. This can be done based on static movements to be performed anywhere—even in the car or at your desk.

 

A short but intense stress. The isometrics causes tension without the muscles changing their length. It is based on an effort that is devoid of motion. Even if practiced only for 6 seconds several times a day, it can increase muscle tone for up to 5% per week. Isometrics allows you to train and relax all body areas like legs, back, abdomen, arms and chest. But it can also be used to actuate muscles that are rarely used in everyday life, such as those of the face and neck.

 

Exercises to flatten your stomach:

1) Starting at the top of a push up position, bend your elbows and lower yourself down until you can shift your weight from your hands to your forearms. Your body should form a straight line. Brace your abs (imagine someone is about to punch you in the gut) and hold for 60 seconds. If you can’t make it to 60 seconds, hold for 5 to 10 seconds and rest for 5 seconds, continuing for 1 minute. Focus on form: Don’t drop your hips or raise your butt.

 

2) Lie on your back with your right knee bent and your left leg extended. Rest your arms on the floor, palms up, at shoulder level with your hips about 2 inches off the floor. Raise your hips to form a straight line from your shoulders to your left foot. Hold for 2 counts, then return to start. That’s 1 rep. Do 10 to 15 reps on each side. To make it harder, cross your arms over your chest.
