There is nothing more exhausting than trying to lose that extra flab that tends to accumulate in the lower belly. But with these exercises you can firm and tone that jiggly area in no time at all.
Following are Some Lower Belly Fat Exercises To Firm And Tone:
90 Degree Press
This exercise is a fantastic warm-up as well before you start the strenuous workout session. To do this, you need to lie down on your back and raise your legs with your knees bent at 90 degrees. To create tension you need to stretch your arms till the palms touch the thighs. While keeping the legs absolutely still, try to exhale and contract the abs, imagining that you are pushing your thighs towards the arms without actually moving them.
Resisted Single Leg Stretch
Now that you have worked out your core, lie down on your back and bring both knees up to your chest. Extend left leg out front while trying to bring the right knee closer to the chest. The head should be lifted to “see” the extended leg. Switch legs and do the same. The hands are supposed to provide resistance to the bent leg.
Support your upper body on your elbows and lean back while sitting with your feet flat on the ground. Suck in the lower abs while lifting the legs to a right angle. Take care that the knees are touching and the toes are pointing upwards. Imagine that you are tracing the letter “U” with your knees and brings your legs to the left and to the right.
Reverse Plank Hover
Sit on the floor with your legs stretched out in front and your upper body resting on the palms of your hands. Brace your abs and try to lift your hips above the ground. You can keep your knees bent slightly at this stage. Try to suck in your abs till it touches the back and stretch the legs completely while trying to push the hips behind the shoulder line. Return to the first position.
Lie on your back on the floor and extend your arms up and behind till you feel the torso just about to rise up from the floor. As you inhale, lift your arms towards the ceiling and upper body off the floor. Exhale midway your journey to finish this set by touching the toes. Inhale and start going back to the original position while exhaling midway.
Straight Leg Raise
Lie down flat on your back with your legs stretched in front. Lock your knees and with an inhalation raise them straight up off the ground till perpendicular to the torso. Exhale and lower the legs to the ground but not touch the floor. The back should always be touching the floor firmly.
In this exercise you need to keep your back stable and fixed to the ground while you roll your knees up to a 90 degree position before bending it towards your chest with every exhale. Inhale and lower the legs till they are just hovering over the floor.
The scissor or flutter kicks involves lying flat on your back with your head supported by your hands. Toes should be pointed and the legs fully extended. Now like the movement of a scissor alternately (and quickly) lift right leg off the floor and stretch towards left and vice versa. Do not rest the legs on the floor till you have completed six to eight repetitions.
Sit on the floor with your arms just behind your hips and your legs bent towards your chest and off the floor. Try to lean your upper body back while stretching out both the legs in front. This is one repetition.
Full Plank Twist
Start with the feet extended forward and bend your elbows and right knee slightly and try bringing it towards your left elbow. The hip turns as well. Repeat the same with your left leg.
With these simple exercises you can wear your swim suits with pride this summer.
