CWP Fitness: Easy Flat Tummy Workouts



 
Almost every girl (body) wants a flat tummy by just wishing for it, but how is that even possible if you don't eat right and workout? there is no way any outfit will really fit if you have a protruding tummy, NO WAY! working out at least three times a week might be pain at first but with little or no time when you begin to see results you will thank yourself for going through the pain, and no, you do not have to visit a gym to workout...you can always do it in the comfort of your home.

These simple home flat tummy workout should guide you.....

 Standing oblique crunch

oblique-crunch-absA. Stand with feet slightly wider than hip-width apart, with your weight on your right leg and a 3- to 5-pound dumbbell in your left hand. Stretch your left hand up and overhead to the right so you feel a stretch in your left side waist (a.k.a your oblique).

B. Crunch your torso to the left, bringing your left knee up and left elbow down toward each other as if trying to crack a nut between your ribs. Return to previous position. Do 12–15 reps, then switch sides and repeat.

Trainer tip: For maximum core challenge, tap the ball of your foot on the floor after each rep instead of putting your whole foot down.

Reverse Crunch

reverse-crunch


Lie on your back on a mat, and place your hands behind your head. Bend your knees and lift your feet off the floor, pointing your toes toward the ceiling. Contract your abs and curl up your tailbone, slightly lifting your lower back off the mat. Return to starting position, and repeat for 1 minute.

Trainer tip: Raise and lower your tailbone slowly to best target your lower abs.




Upside-down pendulum

dumbell-balance-pendulumA. Stand with feet wider than hip-width apart and knees slightly bent. Hold a 3- to 5-pound dumbbell between both hands, and extend your arms toward the ceiling.

B. With head between arms, bend to the left as far as possible, keeping hips and shoulders square. At the last moment, rotate toward floor, then rotate back to forward-facing position and return to arms overhead. Repeat on other side, moving smoothly (like a pendulum). Do 10 reps per side.



Warrior III balance crunch

squat-dumbell-crunch
A. Stand with feet together, holding a 3- to 5-pound dumbbell with both hands. Extend arms and slowly tilt forward at the waist, lifting left leg so it and your upper body are parallel to the floor and your arms are by your ears.

B. Bend elbows to bring the weight in toward your chest. At the same time, bring left knee in toward your chest so elbows and knee meet at the midline. Return to previous position. Do 12–15 reps, then switch sides and repeat.



Squat sweep

squat-sweep-dumbellA. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, holding a 3- to 5-pound dumbbell between both hands. With your shoulders and hips square and knees pointing forward, lower into a squat and bring the weight down by your right hip.

B. Push from your heels up and out of squat position, sweeping the weight diagonally across your body until it’s above your left shoulder. Do 15 reps; switch sides and repeat.

Trainer tip: Need help maintaining proper form? Hold a yoga block or ball between your legs.

    1. Glory dearie, you do not necessarily need a trainer, if you are motivated and zealous enough you can do this alone...but it is always more effective if you workout with a partner.

      Thanks for your comment doll, I do appreciate.
