Summer is fast approaching, and there’s no better time than NOW to SHRINK OUR WAISTLINES! Here’s a great abs guide on the muscles that form your core. For a flat belly you have to target all the muscles of your waistline. Try this Oblique Trimmer from my Daily Workout TV Show that I filmed in the Caribbean a few years back.
As a mother of two kids, I know that we have to re-educate our abdominals to lie flat. And even after I had kids I still ask people “Feel My Tummy” and the reactions I always get crack me up. So the next time I meet you, I may ask you to “Feel My Tummy” too! After all these years, they are still rock hard…so these are tried and true!
Your abs are your powerhouse! They are the center—the CORE of your body. Working those muscles and making them lean and strong will not only give you a sexy, flat tummy but it will also support your spine while you sculpt a toned physique.
Four muscles make up your abdominals: the rectus abdominus, the internal and external obliques, and the transverse abdominis. Your rectus abdominus forms the “six pack,” the front of your abs that reaches vertically from your sternum to your pelvic bone. A traditional sit-up or crunch focuses on those muscles. The plank is one of the best exercises for your transverse abdominus muscles. To zero in on the internal and external obliques, it’s always done with a slight twist, like a bicycle. The move in my Trainer’s Tip is another variation that also targets your obliques.
By adding oblique crunches to your abdominal exercise routine, you’ll be focusing on your entire midsection when you workout. This will improve your posture and help to reduce back pain, as well!
