Stomach Exercises
Hi Girls,

I have decided that 2004 is going to be the year that I get rid of the tummy flab and get a hard flat stomach. I am going to start a tough programme of crunches and leg raises and pilates type exercises. Does anyone else want to join me in this? We could offer support and help with exercises etc.

It would be good to hear from others who aren't happy with their waistlines!

Charlotte

Yes! I am with you! I want a strong, lean stomach. I am going to start doing bellydancing(I have a tape), and pilates. I'm also going to start running to get in shape for spring track, so that will help me burn off some extra fat. I will continue doing yoga because it is so relaxing, and I love that.

Great idea for a thread.


Hey, do you think it is nessecary to do crunches every night? I always feel bad if I skip them, but I heard you also need to give your ab muscles a rest between workouts.

i downloaded my first pilates video last night and did half of it (I need a good mat our hard wood floors are too hard) and man it works your abs and is NOT easy.... so I too am dedicated to bettering that region!

Hi,

Thanks for the replies.

Lovespell....I have heard too that you should rest ab muscles but others say you should do exercises every day. I am exercising my abs ever day. I feel guilty if I don't and I don't want to lose my motivation.

Yesterday I did:-

100 crunches with knees bent
100 crunches knees over to right, 100 with knees over to left
100 crunches with legs in air.

Then I did 50 leg raises - lifting legs together from about 6 inches off floor to vertical, the lowering and 50 knees-to-chest - starting with legs out 6 ins off floor and pulling knees into chest and pushing legs out again. These last two were to work the lower abs where I really need some hard work.

My abs are sore today but I am going to woak them again this evening. I am also running to help burn off the flab. I think the combination of running plus lots of crunches should work.

Good luck to you both in your quest for a flat tum.

Charlotte

remember, though, that you can't spot train -

You can certainly build ab muscle, but if there is fat on top, the only way to get that off is through cardiovascular exercise and by eating well.

Don't want to kill them, I would kill for people not to exclaim that my hip bone nearly poked them in the eye, but i have to refrain myself and such the like.

i have a flat stomach- not that its muscly- but that i'm too skinny--

but i know for a fact that it takes only 2 weeks to make a big difference by working out- then you're just gonna need to keep that!!

crunches work well - or light dieting
I don't know if this is the case with everyone but the first place that gets slimmer when I diet is my waist

haha me and my best friend used to do the exact same thing..she wanted my butt and I wanted her abs...but those times are over now since I worked on my stomach and now its flat! She also has a butt now! I just do a lot of crunches everyday on an exercise ball and do some cardio such as running on the treadmill or working on the exercise bike!
