Anyone is capable of getting a flat, tone stomach with the right diet and a few must-do moves. Crunches, by the way, are not included on the list of moves. They don’t work. Diet is really the key. If you don’t have the right diet, crunches will only build muscle to your stomach making you appear larger. People forget that diet controls 75% of your body size.
The BEST exercises for changing your body shape and toning your abs are core strengthening exercises such as, push- ups and weighted squats. To obtain a tone and sexy stomach one needs to work out the primary muscle groups: chest, quads, hamstrings, back, and glutes. Consume 3-4 servings of vegetables a day, increase lean protein intake with free-range meats, and incorporate high fiber foods like apples and berries.
Jackie Warner’s Favorite AB Exercise (…have you seen that woman’s stomach?)
“Anything that engages the lower body and upper body simultaneously. I love a jackknife. Lie flat on your back with arms extended straight behind the head. Lift the torso, left leg and right arm simultaneously. Attempt to touch the left toe with the right hand. Repeat the move with the other arm and leg. Perform 30 reps for 3 sets” (Jackie Warner, That’s Fit)
