If you are a lazy person, or you do not have time to go to the gym, then here are some simple steps you could do wherever, even while sitting on your desk at work. These will definetly help you get a flat belly.
Check your posture
To keep your tummy flat you need to keep your back strong too as the band of muscle around your waist also helps support your spine. So stand up straight and keep your back and stomach muscles taut.
Crunch and twist
Once you’ve been doing sit-ups for a while you’ll notice that they’ve become a lot easier, don’t give up and don’t just do more, do them differently instead. Keep your hands by your ears and raise yourself up slowly then twist your body – from the waist, not your back or shoulders – and try to touch your knees with your opposite elbow, i.e. your right elbow comes up and across to touch your left knee. Untwist and go back to your starting position. Repeat on each side 10-15 times.
Touch your toes
If you’re bored of sit-ups, try this exercise instead. Lie on the floor with arms straight up, pointing at the ceiling. Slowly curl yourself up and forward so that your hands are pointing towards your toes – and if you can, touch your toes. Then return to your starting position but do it slowly to stretch the muscles. Repeat 15-20 times.
Hold your stomach in
This is an easy exercise if you’re feeling lazy. Just holding your stomach in when you’re walking or waiting for the bus can help tone your belly.
Could it just be bloating?
If it is, then there are loads of things you can do to get a slimmer waist, almost overnight. Swap fizzy drinks for still drinks, chew slowly and take pre and pro biotic supplements, which will increase your good gut bacteria and lessen decrease the bloating.
