Meeting your weight loss goals, or getting closer to them, is an amazing triumph. You will benefit from this change in every aspect of your life from your health, to your self esteem, and even relationships with others. It truly is a life changing accomplishment. However, for anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight, or is considering losing weight, there is one concern. Such a severe change in the stomach area can lead to saggy, fluffy skin, rather than that beach bod you hope for.
Today we are going to share with you, some of the best exercises for toning your stomach after weight loss, so that you have a body you are proud to show off!
Belly Be Gone!
By putting these tummy toning exercises to work, you will be able to achieve that tight stomach you were hoping for when you began your weight loss journey.
1. Legs Up Arm Crunch
Lie flat on your back, and place your legs up in the air at a 90 degree angle with the floor. Place your arms straight out, and curl your shoulders and upper back up off of the floor using your ab strength, keeping your arms up throughout exercise.
2. Air Bicycling
For this exercise you will need to lie on your back again. Place your hands behind your head with your elbows bent, and knees slightly pulled in toward you. Now use your ab strength to curl your shoulders up and off the floor, pulling your right elbow toward your left knee until they touch. Alternate sides with each crunch.
3. Side Bridge
This exercise is performed by lying on your side. rest your weight on your elbow and forearm, and raise your mid-section until your torso and legs form a straight line (sloped upward). By just holding this position you will be toning your abs; hold the position as long as you can.
4. Lying Leg Raises
Lie flat on your back with your legs straight and up in the air (90 degrees from the floor). Keep your legs as straight as you can, and slowly lower them out in front of you until they are almost touching the floor; then lift them back up to your starting position and repeat.
5. Pelvic Thrust
For this exercise lie on your back with your legs up in the air (90 degrees from the floor). While keeping your legs up, slowly lift your pelvis off the floor and upward using your lower abdominal muscles; then lower yourself back down to the floor and repeat.
