These 7 Tummy-Toning Exercises Can Help You Get a Flat Stomach

I was always dreaming about a strong body and perfect abs. I exercise hard and tried different diets, but I didn’t get the results I wanted. By the time I started losing my confidence and self-esteem. I thought that I would never lose my extra weight and get the body I wanted. Likely one evening I found a workout plan on the internet, and I decided to try it. Believe it or not, after one month of regular exercise I started noticing the results. That was the motivation I needed, and I continue to the workout till I finally get what I dreamed about.

For all you who want to lose weight and get a flat stomach, I am giving you a list of exercise which helped me.

1. Push-ups

Start on your hands and knees with your hands underneath your shoulders. Then come onto the balls of your feet and the heels of your hands, and then walk the feet back until you are in the plank position. Bend your elbows, lowering your body down. Then slowly push yourself back up to the starting position.

2. Squats

Start with your feet shoulder-width apart, and your chest held up and out. Extend your hands straight out in front of you. Then sit back and down like you’re sitting in a chair. Lower down, so your thighs are parallel to the floor, with your knees over your ankles. Hold this position for few seconds and bring yourself back to the starting position.

3. Crunches

You should lie on your back with the knees bent and feet flat on the floor, hip-width apart. Then place your hands behind your head. Gently pull your abdominals inward. Curl up and forward so that your head, neck, and shoulder blades lift off the floor. Hold the position for few seconds and slowly back down. Repeat it 10 times.

4. Goblet Lunges

Take a kettlebell and hold it with your both hands under your chin. Then step out with your right foot and bend at both knees until they make a 90-degree angle.

Stand back up and bring your left leg forward even to your right leg. Step out with your left leg. Do this 15 times.

5. Donkey Kicks

To do this exercise, you should start on your fours. Then lift your left leg keeping the knee bend, the thigh should be parallel to the floor. Try to stretch the foot as much as you can and hold the pose several seconds. Then bring your leg back to the starting position. Switch legs and repeat 10 times.

6. Windshield Wiper Abs

Lie down on your mat and make a “T” shape of your upper body. Extend your arms sideways and raise your legs with knees making a 90-degree angle. Then raise your legs in an inclined manner and make some pause, before you flip them to the other side. Repeat this exercise for several times.

7. Plank

Start with the pushup position. Your upper part of the body must be straight in line with the elbows and toes when they are slightly raised. Keep up this straight position, take deep breaths, and feel the muscles getting strong. When you contract the buttock muscles, equally divide the weight into both legs and elbows to have more strength and balance.

I did these exercises every morning after waking up for a period of three months, and I am really satisfied with the results. Don’t think twice, try this workout plan immediately.
