Now that spring appears to finally be back in our lives, many people are worried about losing those couple of extra pounds of chub which stand between them and a sculpted midriff. Those people who let themselves go a little in the winter months may be working overtime now that it is
April and thoughts of bikinis are dancing in their heads. The good news is that there are, needless to say, stomach exercises to speed along the process. Some are better than others, such as these few, that are good particularly for trimming belly fat. Just like any workout routine, be sure to seek advice from a professional prior to beginning and always warm up properly to avoid injury.
Hip Lift For this stomach exercise, you will need to lie on your back on a flat surface, like the floor. Use a mat or towel to cushion your spine. Place your arms at your sides with palms facing up to the ceiling. Put your legs straight up in the air making sure that the soles of your feet are facing the ceiling and your legs make around a 90 degree angle with your torso. Keep your knees unbent and as straight as possible. Now, contract your ab muscles in order that it feels like your belly button is being pulled toward your spine, while while doing so gently lifting your hips off the floor. Raise your hips to height of a few inches, keeping your legs extended straight upward. Hold this position, then gradually lower your hips back to the floor. Repeat for an entire set.
Seated Torso Twist Stay on the floor for this stomach exercise, getting into a seated position. Bend your knees so that your feet are flat on the floor. Place your feet approximately hip width apart. Extend your arms straight out in front of you, interlocking your fingers. Contract your abdominals and lean back about forty-five degrees. Holding the contraction, rotate your torso as far to one side as you're comfortably able. Use your abdominals to control this motion so that your upper body moves at once, don't lead with your arms. Keep in mind to keep your arms in from of you with fingers locked-- pretend you're aiming an imaginary gun. As soon as you have rotated as far as you feel comfortable, rotate back to center, then to the other side. Repeat these steps for an entire set. Be careful to go slow and keep a controlled movement. Do not allow your momentum to twist you.
