Here are the five exercises that you can do at the comfort of your home to get a flat tummy.
Perhaps the easiest of them all and most beneficial for upper abdomen, crunches would be your first go-to for a flat tummy and a fitter you. All you need to do is lie down straight on the floor, holding your hands by your ears. Slowly bend your knees with your feet straight on the floor. Thereafter, lift your shoulders and upper back, up and away from the floor ensuring your face points towards the ceiling. Exhale as you go up and inhale as you return to the original position. 15-25 repetitions per day would be perfect to attain those washboard abs!
Crunches with twists
Perfect to get rid of those love handles caused after eating oodles of junk food, crunches with twists begin with simple crunches. The only difference being, one has to raise oneself up slowly and then twist one’s body from the waist for better results. Try to touch your left knee with your right elbow and vice versa 10-15 repetitions on each side can do wonders to your flabby tummy.
Lie down on the floor with your arms by your sides. Place your palms downwards and your legs over your hips at 90 degrees. Lift your hips off the floor putting the pressure on your core muscles and let your legs point towards the ceiling. Then return to the starting position. 15-20 repetitions are ideal for a flat stomach.
Pike and stretch
Lie straight on the floor with your legs extended over your hips, then pull yourself up, like one would do while doing crunches. Ensure your hands reach towards your feet. Bring your arms back overhead, lowering your left leg towards the floor. Crunch up again with your hands reaching for your toes, bring your arms back overhead and lower your right leg towards the floor. Repeat 20 times for an unbelievably fit tummy.
