Get Rid of that Potbelly
The lower belly is definitely the hardest place to lose weight. Every year, millions of people jump from a fitness regimen to diet plan in a desperate attempt to lose their stubborn belly fat. The majority of them never see the results they want.
Maybe you’re one of these people. Perhaps you’ve started a new year’s resolution only to forget about it by February. Or even worse, you’ve been sticking to your fitness regimen faithfully, and seeing poor results.
Losing weight isn’t easy. It requires motivation and dedication. Watch what happens when you cut out alcohol, try it for a week. Leave the bread alone. Forget about any type of soft drink. Get a filling in your sweet tooth. Do this for a week, you might like the results. Now add a walk at the end of the day, or start your day with a hello world walk. When you see results it is easier to adjust your diet to be healthier and add a little bit more to your exercise routine. The belly will be gone before you know it. Now if I would just to this! .
Morning Abdominal Exercises
A weak abdomen will sag out whether you have belly fat or not. Luckily, strengthening your core is easy, doesn’t require any equipment, and only takes 10 to 20 minutes per day to do.
Start with a few simple exercises like planks, sit-ups, and flutter kicks. If you want to feel really good, throw in a short yoga routine to increase your flexibility and concentration while you tone up.
The best part about this routine is that it gets the blood flowing to the brain and heart. It’ll make you feel more alert and will also clear up morning grogginess in moments.
Perfect Your Posture
Bad posture lowers blood flow to the brain, makes you look shorter and less confident, and makes your belly bulge out. It may take some work, but fixing bad posture will instantly improve you both physically and mentally. Seriously, we’re not exaggerating.
There could be lots of things wrong with your posture. Therefore, you’ll need to figure out your particular issue. However, we do have some pointers.
- Keep your chin parallel to the ground. Pushing your neck too far out can cause cramping in the neck and upper back.
- Make sure your chest is perpendicular to the ground. A caved-in chest lowers your lung capacity and makes your belly stick out.
- Keeping your belly slightly tightened is the key to good posture. Your abs should be just tight enough to keep your spine straight, but lose enough so it doesn’t strain you or yourself!
- Keep your shoulders down in back. Take them out of your ears!
A nice flat belly is a good goal! Go for it!
