1. Plank and Twist
Planking is simply going on all fours with straight body, legs stretching while forearms and elbows support your body. Once you have this position, slowly twist your hips from left to right and vice versa without moving your hands or feet. Exhale as you twist. Do this repeatedly, at least 8 times on each side.
2. Planking on a Ball
You may also use an exercise or yoga ball for a planking position. Place your thighs on the ball as your forearms and elbows are properly positioned to support your whole body. Slowly crawl or walk as you keep stomach muscles tight for 30 seconds.
3. Abdominal Twist with Weights
This is another easy exercise for flattening stomach. Just lay on the floor, and lift your body and legs off the floor. Grab a dumbbell or medicinal ball. Cross your legs and twist upper body from left to right and vice versa. As you twist, keep your stomach muscles tight. Do as many times as you can.
4. Double Toe Hold (V Pose)
This popular yoga position is also a good exercise for flat belly. Sit on the floor with mat on. Lift your legs straight into the air and reach to touch your toes with your fingers. This should create a V shaped pose. Hold it for 8 breaths and stop. Repeat as many times as you can.
5. Scale Pose (Tolasana)
Sit on the floor with mat. Cross your legs. Place hands on the mat. Lift your entire body with your legs crossed and your hands still placed on the floor for support. Keep your stomach and pelvic floor muscles tight as you lift your body up. Hold this position for 3 breaths before you stop and repeat.
6. Swan Dive
You can use just a yoga mat or a ball for this exercise. Lay on the mat or ball on your belly. Stretch your arms and toes pointed straight. Lift your arms and stretch legs, holding this position for a few seconds. Relax and do it again.
7. Donkey Kicks
Position your body on all fours. As you tighten your stomach muscles, stretch one knee off the floor and point backward (kick), lower the knee without touching the floor and repeat. Do with the other leg.
Choose one or try all of these exercises if you are committed to having flat stomach. These are easy and quick workouts you need to do to achieve your goal. You must definitely do them NOW for everyday or at least 3 days a week, and see the amazing result!
