It may not be a secret that the best way to a six-pack is a healthy diet and regular exercise, but there’s a right way and a wrong way to a flat belly. Here are 15 ultimate tips to getting flat abs. Follow one or two or all and the only worry left will be deciding which bikini is best show off your sexy flat belly.
1. KNOW THE RIGHT COMBINATION
Getting flat abs isn’t about starving yourself or living at the gym. Reducing belly fat involves a mix of smart eating and effective exercise. Make sure you eat enough food to keep your body from experiencing hormone imbalances; eating too little (fewer than 1200 calories a day) reduces the amount of the fat-burning hormone leptin in your body, which will slow down weight loss. And if you’re just exercising without changing your diet, you’ll spend a lot of time at the gym with little result.
2. CORRECT YOUR POSTURE
Doing regular posture-building exercises pack a double punch when it comes to busting that belly. Having good posture helps you look slimmer instantly, while sticking to a posture-building routine every day will strengthen your ab muscles, and help get you well on your way to a six-pack.
3. H.I.I.T. IT
Ab exercises will help define those muscles, but don’t forget cardio for overall weight loss; otherwise all those sit-ups will go to waste. If you want results fast, try high intensity interval training, which has been proven to be one of the best ways to fight belly fat.
