1. WANT A TIGHTER TUMMY & STONGER CORE?
Pull your belly button toward your spine and hold for 5-10 seconds while breathing normally. Repeat 5-10 times. This works the deep core abdominal muscle, the transversus abdominis lying close to the spine. The muscle acts like a natural “girdle’” to support and stabilizes the spine.
2. TRY A RUN WALK PROGRAM
Many people do well with run-walk programs. After walking briskly for 5 minutes to warm up, try 1 minute of running alternating with 3 minutes of walking for a total of 20 to 30 minutes. Then increase running by 30-60 seconds each week or two until you can run 5 or more minutes consecutively. Eventually you’ll be
running without the needing to walk at all over the course of 30 minutes. This can be adjusted, depending your overall health and level of fitness. Alternating running and walking allows you to improve you fitness level gradually as well as letting your muscles adjust to the impact stress of running.
3. LIFT WEIGHTS
Many people trying to lose fat make the mistake of only doing cardio. Weight lifting is a great way to burn calories and fat. Use free weights for the most part, and try circuits, supersets and higher reps.
