For most of us it is not possible to get stunning abs in 4 weeks, but we can certainly get a Flat Tum in 4 Weeks!
Those that only have a small belly hump or some barely noticeable love handles may only see a small difference in this time. However if you are a little bit larger around the middle section then you will likely notice more of a change.
Now not many folks enjoy the thought of hard exercise on a regular set timetable. Well the good news is that this is not the answer. Yes you will need to do some exercise but not the sort that leaves you gasping for breath after 10 minutes.
A mixture of intake control and output effort is the key here to the tummy fat reduction. As far as the intake part goes, you need to increase the amount of water that you drink each day and reduce the amount of fast food and other fatty drenched foods you eat. Also reduce the sugar and sugar based fizzy drinks that you consume. That should take care of the input side of things.
Now for the output. If you spend most of your day sitting then make sure you stand up and walk around your chair a couple of times every 15 minutes. During your breaks take a brisk walk around. After work try a brisk walk for at least 15 minutes. If there are some stairs or hilly inclines, all the better.
After the first few days of this you may well notice an increase in energy and start to feel a bit more alive. Now we can begin some of the exercises that target the middle section of your body.
These can be done at home or at work if you spend time sitting in a chair. Make sure you are sitting properly in a fixed chair [that is, one that does not tip] with your back against the chair back. Now extend one leg out so it is parallel to the floor and keep it there for 10secs. Then lower that leg and repeat for the other leg. At first you may notice a tightening at the back of the knee, especially if your foot is bought to the vertical position. This is the stretching of the muscles in the back of your leg. Don’t overdo this.
After a few days, when you feel comfortable with the exercise, you can raise both legs together and hold for 10 seconds before lowering. If you place your hand on your stomach while doing this you will feel the hardening of your abs. Leaning forward at the same time will add extra effort to the exercise and help you get you a flat tum even quicker.
These exercises can be done at home while relaxing as well, providing you are in a chair that provides firm support. Our Featured Articles section has more challenging exercises that slim down your belly and diets to keep you in shape. Check them out!
