5 Steps To A Flat Tummy In 7 Days
Happy sunny Sunday ladies. Hope you’re having a good one.
For some of us who have one or two issues with our tummy, I’m sure you want to wear your favourite figure hugging dress but are worried about your flabby stomach bulging out. Well, you still have a last option. While you cannot reduce fat, you can lose belly fat by decreasing your total body fat percentage. And you don’t have to completely alter your daily habits to get a flat stomach within 7 days.
If you want to build muscle and burn fat at the same time, you have to perform circuit training, three days a week. How do you achieve this? Indulge in full body exercises like lunges, push-ups and pull-ups, for one set of 15 repetitions. Don’t forget to follow every exercise with one minute of jumping rope. You should be able to burn about 500 to 600 calories per workout.
You have to work on your abdominal muscles three times a week. Crunches and leg raises for three sets of 20 repetitions should be done. Also, do planks by holding your body in a push up position on your elbows for 30 to 60 seconds of four sets.
The kind of food you will eat in this period is vital in bringing about any change. Natural foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads and pastas, chicken, beef, fish and low fat diary should replace processed foods full of sugar.
To minimize water retention, lower your sodium intake. This means you need to avoid salt. You can flavour your food with other herbs and spices instead.
Stressing and anxiety can cause the over production of a certain hormone called cortisol, which encourage weight gain about the belly area. So try to keep your cool.
