Some effective exercises that give you a flat tummy in 30 days

Thank you for clicking on my article. Hello you all. How are you doing? It is a new month and rejoice and be glad in it; for we are privileged to witness it. A quote from reads “doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will”; inspiring right?

In this article, we will have a look at some exercises that will prove to you that indeed there is a way out for your tummy. They are also effective as well, from the comfort of your homes. Every exercise can be done within the range of 5-10 minutes and don’t forget to have some breaks;

The rectus abdominis: 

It relates to the 6-packs people talk about. What the some girls really admire about the physique of a male. This is positioned between the ribs and the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis. This can be done in two ways; the chest towards the pelvis and the pelvis towards the chest.

The crunches:

They are seen a classic core exercise for defining the abdominal muscles and are ideal for toning the rectus abdominis and oblique muscles. They are also seen as the fastest way to burn the belly fat without the use of any equipment. With this exercise you can lie on your back on the floor or on a comfortable mat. Bend your knees and lift your shoulders toward the ceiling using your abdominal muscles and pause at the peak. Lift your upper body off the mat, exhale as you go up and inhale as you come down. Repeat for some minutes.

The side planks:

This helps to maintain proper posture and reduce stress on the spine and hence prevent back issues. This strengthens the abdominal and the back muscles and can be practiced anytime but being consistent is the key. Extend your legs and lie on your right side such that your feet and hips rest on the floor on top of each other. Place your right elbow under your shoulder, while contracting your core muscles; lift your hips and knees off the floor. Hold on to the position for few seconds and come back to the normal position. Continue this on the other side.
