We promised you 5 tips for you to achieve a flat stomach (provided you put the work in):
- Eat Right :
The biggest problem for most people is that they have too much abdominal fat. Losing that is the first step to a flat stomach, and requires a combination of diet and exercise. Aim to consistently give your body what it needs: fruits, whole grains, vegetables, nuts, and lean protein. Eat small regular, meals and drink lots of water.
- Cardio Exercise :
One of the keys to burning fat is steady cardio exercise. Performed at least three times per week for a minimum of twenty minutes, this will start to burn away the fat and reveal the muscles that lie beneath.
- Interval Training :
Interval training is very effective at burning fat because it spikes your metabolism, causing you to burn more calories for up to 24 hours after the workout. However, you should only do this intense training once or twice per week.
- Work the Abs :
Of course, you have to work your abs to get that trim shape. A recent study found that the three most effective ab exercises are crunches on an exercise ball, bicycle crunches, and Roman Chair leg lifts. Not sure how to do these? Then....
- Enlist Help :
if you are struggling, whether because you don't know how to eat properly, are unfamiliar with the exercises, or simply need someone to motivate you, then consider working with a personal trainer. They can really make the difference as they push you that little bit further.
