Lifestyle tips: 3 best exercises to have a flat stomach


Everybody wants to have a flat stomach, especially in the summer. A beautiful tan always goes perfectly with a flat abdomen.

So, what are the best exercises to have a flat stomach?

It is known that a healthy lifestyle is the key to a great shape: a balanced diet (a lot of green vegetables and fruits, less meat), a lot of physical activity (sedentarism leads to many health problems). So, let's have three main exerceises that, if you practice them, you'll have a flat abdomen in less time.

The plank:

The plank is the most efficient method to lose fat on your belly and strengthen your stomach muscles. There are many forms of plank: elbow, side, regular plank.

The elbow plank it is said to be the most efficient as it burns quicklier the fats in the area. So, go into the pushup position on the floor. Bend your elbows 90 degrees and let your weight on your forearms. The position of your elbows should be directly beneath your shoulders. It can be practiced several times each day holding on to the position as longer as possible but not less than 2 minutes.

The regular plank, like in the image, not only helps your stomach look flat but also tightens your thighs and arms. Just like all plank exercises. So, again place yourself into the pushup position with your legs stretched; hold your body straight while you press your arms to the ground. Keep it as long as you can but not less than 2 minutes.

The side plank is holding your body position on your side leaning on one arm pointing to the ceiling. The pressure of the body will be in your feet below but it will help burn fats and grow muscles.  

The boat exercise for a flat abdomen:

As long as you keep  a pressure on your stomach muscles, fat can burn leaving territory to flattness. The boat exercise is really good for the lower part of the stomach. Sit on a mat with your knees bent, lift your legs and chest up till you make a V shape, hold for about 30 seconds and repeat as many times as possible.

The crunch:

While lying on your mat and bend your knees but keep the feet flat on the ground. Then lift your chest as close as possible to the knees. Do this exercise as many times as possible.

Having a flat abdomen is not a simple thing, it requires training, time and devotion, it can not have results over the night but if you do it regularly, the results will definitely appear.
