If only eating cake was a way to get trim and fit…but as you’ve probably realised that isn’t what this is about!
If your waist is obscuring rather more of your feet than it should, here are some ways to reduce that hip and stomach bulge.
The cake-like overflow above your trouser waistband is plain old stomach fat. As well as not looking too good, carrying fat around your middle can have health effects. Something needs to be done.
First, reveal those muscles with some painless calorie control measures – as always, it is about lifestyle change not short-term dieting.
Now try these three targeted moves:
This version of the stomach crunch is the next item in your muffin-top blasting repertoire. Start by lying on a mat with knees bent and back pressed flat to the floor.
Here is the bicycle crunch in detail.
Work those obliques in any spare moment – although this may attract attention at the bus stop.
To add some difficulty, you can hold a weight in your straight arm.
Do 10 reps of each of these, working up to 3 sets each. The muffin-top will not survive that!
despite the picture, the muffin top is not just a female issue although men will generally think 'beer belly'. So I'll be doing some of these exercises too.
I think the forearm plank twist is an amazing exercise for baggy bellies. Just a minute for two days in a row and my stomach is aching so much!
I clicked on this thinking it was muffin recipes! Probably a good thing it wasn't. These exercises are definitely more what I need!
