What everyone wants....a smooth flat stomach that looks sexy and toned. It's attainable for just about anyone, but you do have to put in the work.
Contrary to what many believe, crunches and ab exercises alone are not going to get you those flat abs. It's a combination of diet and exercise that gets you there. So, let's start with the diet. You know that consuming excessive fat and sugar is a no no already, right? Then, what you need to do here is to have other good, enjoyable, filling foods on hand to keep you from grabbing and snacking on the bad stuff. Here are a few things you can consume instead:
Sugarless items and desserts made with a sugar substitute
Foods and vegetables with a high fiber content that help combat hunger
Also, don't forget that smaller portions can go a long way in helping you shave the amount of sugar and fat you consume on a daily basis.
We all know that diet alone is not enough to get that trim, toned look. If you're tired of just doing crunches, try some of these ab toning methods for a change:
Crunches on a stability ball
Balancing exercises on a BOSU
Hanging leg lifts/raises
Twists with a light weight medicine ball
Twists with a light weight body bar
Dancer's crunch (in standing position, contract abs all the way in, and then release, repeating 10 to 15 times per set
