How To Get A Flat Tummy
A flat tummy is a common goal among women who first start exercising. A flat stomach is a sign of health,
fitness, and a low body fat percentage, which is why it is a popular goal.
To get a flat tummy, there are a few key things that you not only have to understand, but also do extremely
well. In this article, we will talk about diet, exercise, and motivation - since all three are the key ingredients
for attaining that strong, ripped core.
Women must first realize that a flat stomach is the result of a low body fat percentage and strong muscle. You
body fat must be low enough to see the muscle below it. This is why a combination of diet and exercise is
Losing body fat can be done in a variety of different ways, but in the end it equates to burning more calories
than you consume. This can be accomplished by cardio, strength
training, or eating less. Most fitness professionals believe that the most effective and efficient way to do

build muscle and burn calories throughout the day. A good strength routine will include compound and isolation
movements to really work your muscles. For an incredibly defined stomach, try incorporating these core moves into
• Hanging Leg Raises: These are performed by hanging onto a pullup bar and raising your knees to your chest
in a slow, controlled movement. You should feel this in your upper, middle, and lower abdominal muscles. As you get
good at this, try to add weight.
• Front Bridges: Start by laying on your stomach, then get into the front bridge position by raising up on
your elbows. Keep your core tight throughout this entire exercise and don’t let your hips sink below parallel. You
can perform this exercise for 30, 45, or 60 seconds.
• Decline Situps: These are done on a decline bench and allow you to get a full range of motion compared to
situps done on the ground. Focus on using your abdominals to pull you up - not your hip flexors. Once you get good
at this, add weight.
A good diet and exercise plan can be hard to follow consistently, which is why it is important to stay
motivated. Look at pictures of your goal physique from time to time, and make sure to have a cheat meal once and a
while. Check out more adominal exercises for women here.
