Getting flat abs means you’re going to have to pay attention to what you eat, and that you get plenty of ab developing exercise. In addition to the time you log in the gym, there’s some other things you can do to help improve the appearance of your abs.
Don’t get so focused on doing things like sit ups and crunches that you skip other aspects of a well-rounded workout. Believe it or not, logging a few hours on the treadmill every single day will do wonders for both your abs and your circulatory health.
You do have to be aware of what you eat, certain foods tend to go straight to your abs and gather in the fat cells. Now that you’re a little older and staying in shape has gotten harder, you need to lighten up on your carbs and try to eliminate sweets and fat from your diet. Replace them with healthy proteins.
Even on the days when you don’t have time to get to the gym, or get in a full workout, you should at least do a few of your ab flattening exercises. A couple is better than doing none at all.
Laugh a lot. Believe it or not, laughter does great things to the abdominal muscles. Each time you indulge in a good belly laugh, they’ll contract and relax. It’s like a mini-workout. Laughter will also release endorphins into your brain, decreasing the chance of you developing depression.
The most important thing to remember when it comes to your abs, is that it takes time and commitment for them to flatten out and tone up. You have to be patient. With some work and time, you’ll develop an amazing stomach.
