Wanna make all that healthy eating pay off with a toned, fit body?! Today, let’s talk about Abs! By keeping your sodium intake low and staying away from alcohol, calorie-dense foods and saturated fats that can cause bloat and a spare tire and doing the right exercises, you’ll be able to show off a flat tummy in no time!
Sarah Jessica Parker is somebody who comes to mind when we think of great abs. Here’s three ways to get those abs in ship-shape, like our favorite Sexy Lady in the City.
Lie flat on your back.
Place your hands behind your head at the base of your skull.
Make an L-shape with your knees above your hips and shins in a table-top position.
Curl forward and extend one leg, twisting your elbow, shoulders and ribs to the opposite, bent knee.
Switch sides 20X.
- Pilates 100s
Start in the same position as the Criss-cross but with hands reaching forward by your sides.
Curl up and begin taking small, controlled pumps with your arms breathing in for 5 counts and out for 5 counts.
Stay up until you’ve taken 10 full breathes…that = 100!
- Make a playlist of three of your favorite pumped up tunes. Turn up the volume and challenge yourself to crunched until song 1 is finished. Rest and stretch for song 2 and then try to get all the way through song 3 with crunches again. Build up to it, it’s worth it.
Happy now, flat tummy?
