Trim your waist and build a stronger core without doing a single crunch!

Trim your waist

As a personal trainer, one question I get asked a lot is, “how can I get a flat stomach/6 pack/great abs”? It’s something a lot of people strive for.

Now I’m not going to give you a workout plan with a hundred different variations of crunches. What I will tell you is that you can trim your waist and build a stronger core without doing a single crunch.

Yes, you read that right. Not a single crunch.

As far as exercise is concerned, you may have noticed I don’t share many “ab” specific workouts here on real fit moms. That’s because I believe you should be working your core/abs with each and every excise you do. Your abs are your girdle, you should have them engaged as often as you can, especially when your exercising. Even when your not.

Stop what your doing, take a breath and brace/engage your abs. Imagine you are trying to draw your belly button back against your spine. Don’t hold your breath, you should still be able to breathe freely while your abs are engaged. Now hold it for 10 seconds to start with. Relax and repeat.

Do this anywhere and everywhere – while your making dinner, folding laundry, sitting at the stop light while your driving around in your car running errands. Slowly build on the length of time you hold this for and in no time at all you will see progress. I promise.

I also firmly believe that abs are made in the kitchen. If you want to see that “6 pack” or even just get yourself a flatter stomach one of the main things you need to do it clean up your diet.

Look at what your eating. A lot of foods have crazy amounts of hidden salt (among other things)  and this my friend is something that can cause fluid retention and crazy bloating, ain’t nobody got time for that!

I would encourage you to eat as much fresh produce as possible. Lot’s of lean protein (chicken, turkey, fish, salmon, beef, kangaroo etc), lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. Pay attention to what and how much your eating. Eat slowly so your not swallowing excess air and chew your food properly.

I was so excited to see I was not alone in my “no crunches required to trim your tum” mindset when we met Beth, owner of Fit2B in one of our weekly “How do you stay fit” features.

Beth is a professional, and girlfriend knows what she is talking about and actually specializes in this area. She has a wide variety of family friendly programs to offer which are designed to  ”effectively tone and strengthen the WHOLE body without crunches” and some particularly target Diastasis Recti (split abs). 

So, whether you’re just starting out, male or female, new mama, expectant mama, or your little ones are grown, you should totally stop by Fit2B and check out some of the incredible workouts Beth has to offer. A wide variety of fitness routines, ready when you are in the comfort of your own home, family friendly so everyone can join in while at the same time managing to be gentle, yet effective! LOVE

Beware the scale . . .

I was watching the biggest loser last night and something struck me. Well it usually does, it’s sooooo emotional. My heart breaks for these contestants who find themselves feeling lost, helpless and out of control. We have all been there right? I know I have. It’s no fun I can tell you that much. Anyway, […] Read more »
