4 TUMMY FAT Exercises to Lose Belly Fat ➟ Lift Your Butt ➟ No Equipment Weightloss Workout for Women



The Ab-Tightening Workout You're Not Doing—But Should Be

The abs are your body’s built-in way of stabilizing itself. When you remove balance points, your abs will always engage. Try it! Go from standing on two feet to standing on only one. Notice how your abs turn “on.” How about going from kneeling on “all 4s” to extending one leg or arm out. Hi, abs! Now try getting into plank on toes and elbows, turning to one side, and lifting your top foot and forearm (shown below).

Feel it? Now, imagine this: You removeallcontact with the floor. When hanging in the air and attempting movement, your abs are recruited for both for your body’s strength and stability needs. The next time you’re in the gym, find a pull-up bar or a fitness rig to which you can attach a set of ab straps. Use the attached sling to lock them in, and get ready to set a match to your abs muscles! (You can also install a pull-up bar in a door frame at home to do this workout whenever you like.)

The workout:Perform 4 of each of the following exercises. Rest as long as you’d like. Complete 4 sets total like this. Aim to do this series once a week, in conjunction with your other core training. (Try this crunch-less core workout that you can do standing.)

Hanging Crunches

These recruit your 6-pack muscles (rectus abdominis) as well as the deepest abs muscles (transverse abdominis) for strength, and external and internal obliques for stability.

  1. Slide your arms through the straps and grip your hands around the top. Engage your upper back muscles to depress your shoulders (away from your ears), and hang with your legs straight out and triceps nearly parallel to the ground.
  2. Squeeze your legs together, bend your knees, and pull them tight in towards your belly. Hold momentarily.

Tight back? Find relief with these stretches:
