Everyone wants a smaller waist line but very few people consider doing it through out the day. These “sneaky” stomach slimming exercises can help you to trim and firm while your doing your daily acitvities. You don’t need to be on the floor, on a ball, or even in a gym. These tips were inspired by “Self Magazine.”
While You’re Working Out
Whether your doing the elliptical, treadmill, stair stepper or weights, keep your stomach in, and chest up. Having proper posture will help you look leaner and target your abs as you exercise away the calories.
When You’re in the Car
When you hit a red light, tighten and relax your abs several times. This would be the equvilant of doing Kegals or crunches. This will deliver some quick results and start your path to a slimmer stomach.
When At Your Desk
Push your stomach out, then suck in your stomach in as if you were trying to button your skinny jeans. Once you have your stomach sucked in comfortably, hold that as you work. Do this for as long as you can then relax. Repeat this 5 times. This does take some practice so make sure you post a sticky note at your desk about it.
When You’re Walking The Dog
If you don’t have a dog you can still do this as you walk. Brace yourself against the tugging of the dog. Tighten and engage your abs for 5 strides, then relax for 5 strides. Repeat this throughout your entire walk.
When You’re In Bed
While laying in bed, place your palms below your belly button. Exhale and allow your stomach to expand. Next, inhale and pull your belly button to your spine, pulling your stomach in towards the mattress. Hold this for 10 seconds and then repeat 4 times.
The average person would love to have a slimmer stomach but doesn’t think about their abs unless they are working out. These fitness tips show you that you can do exercise any time of the day in all your daily activities. Fitness is about consistency, make sure you are integrating it onto the things you do daily.
