5 Tummy Toning Exercises to Try at Home
Ask women what they long for the most; and the majority is to swear by a Flat or Well-Toned Tummy. Indeed, a flat tummy adds to your beauty and makes your persona all the more appealing.
But getting a flat tummy isn’t as easy as talking. It does need some efforts and a little hard work. However, lack of time retains many of the stay at home moms and housewives from hitting gym and getting that well-toned tummy.
Well, just because you can’t hit a gym doesn’t mean you can’t tone your tummy. Here check out these 5 easy to do tummy toning exercises―you can do them at the comfort of your home and bid adieu to tummy flab. Also, the Good News; these don’t even call for any equipment. Check them out and see which one fits you the best:
1. Crunches or Sit ups
This exercise type benefits your upper abdomen by releasing fat deposits. All you need to do is, simply lie down on floor holding your hands by your ears. Now bend your knees and keep the feet on floor. Lift up your shoulders and upper back and face towards ceiling. Exhale while coming up, hold the breath for a second, and now inhale while you return back to starting position. Repeat it around 10-15 times.
2. Pike and Extend
This is another best exercise to do for a toned tummy. It works on your lower abdomen and helps tighten up loose muscles. Just lie on floor, keep legs extended over your hips. Now crunch up so that your hands reach towards your feet. Bring back your arms overhead while lowering your left leg towards floor. Crunch up again letting your hands reach both your toes, however; this time lower down your right leg towards floor when bringing back your arms overhead. Repeat it 15 times alternating sides.
3. Hip lifts
Hip lifts work fine for both your upper and lower abdomen. In order to do this exercise, you must lie on floor placing your arms by your sides. Your palms should face down while your legs must be over your hips at 90 degrees. Feet need to be flexed. Now, lift your hips up using your core muscles and stretch up your legs towards ceiling. Come back to starting position. Repeat this exercise for at least 10-15 times.
4. Shape your core while you walk
This is one of the easiest ways of shrinking belly fat and toning your tummy. While walking in the house, or going around with your everyday routine, tuck in your tummy as if some magnet is pulling it toward your spine. Keep practicing it until it becomes comfortable, and soon it will become part of your nature and the ab- muscles will shrink in. Don’t hold your breath while doing this; just keep breathing the way you do.
5. Bicycle Crunches
This exercise targets your deep abs and helps cutting down fat, thus toning your tummy. To do this, you need to lie flat on floor with lower back pressed to ground. Place your hands behind your head.
Now bring your knees closer to chest and lift up your shoulder. Straighten right leg (making a 45 degree angle) while turning your upper body to left, bring your right elbow toward your left knee. Switch sides, and repeat the motion on other side as well. Repeat it for 15-20 times.
Just be consistent with your exercise type and you will surely notice the wonderful change. Aim at burning more calories and leading an active life each day.
