Here we’ll look at four targeted exercises for getting a flat stomach in the shortest possible time.
Exercise 1 – The Crunch
Lie down with your legs bent and arms behind your head. Place your feet flat on the floor about 30 centimeters from your buttocks. Now tighten your abs and lift your shoulders a few centimeters off the ground. Count to 3 and relax. Repeat 10 to 15 times.
Important: Keep your shoulders relaxed and press your lower back firmly against the ground with every crunch. Only apply strength with your abdominal muscles and therefore do not pull with your arms.
Exercise 2 – Cycling in the Air
Lie on the floor with your arms at your side. Raise your legs at a 90-degree angle, tighten your stomach and start pedaling like on a bicycle. Do three sets of 10 circles.
Tip: If you want to increase the level of difficulty, raise your shoulders 10 centimeters above the ground while you perform the exercise.
Important: Keep your pelvis well tilted to the ground and do not pull in your back.
Exercise 3 – Leg Raises
Lie on the floor, face up, legs extended. Place your hands underneath your lower back so your pelvis is supported. Begin to raise your legs toward the ceiling, pressing your thighs together and keeping the legs straight. Lift until your hips are fully flexed and you can’t go any higher with straight legs, then lower back down and repeat. Do three sets of ten leg raises.
Exercise 4 – Elbow Knee Twist
Stay on the floor with your legs bent your feet on the floor. Put your hands behind your neck and keep your elbows open. Now raise your left shoulder in the direction of your right knee and extend your left arm to the right of your right knee. Then relax again and do the same to the other side. Repeat this exercise alternately 10 times per side.
Important: Do not place your chin against your chest, but keep your head sufficiently upright. There must always be a space between your lower chin and chest the size of a tennis ball.
For All Exercises
The general approach for all exercises is to do the exercises as fast as you can, then rest for about two minutes in between sets.
Exercise is just one of four elements to achieve a flat belly in short time. The other three things to to be done are:
- Diet – that is knowing what foods to avoid and what to eat.
- Reduce your stress levels.
- Reduce fatty tissue around your abdomen.
