Or perhaps the abs I want. After having two children, building the abs back to where they once were is quite the challenge. But like most people wanting to get fit, they’re a major goal.
For me, the layer of fat that developed after having kids is my biggest challenge. For you it may be something different. But fat over the abs is a major reason why your stomach may not look how you would prefer it to. So start working on what you eat. Cut out the sweets, fats and unhealthy foods.
I do crunches, but without the fat gone, the work I do just won’t show. And that means burning the fat. Sweating. Getting that heart rate up. This is one I need to do more often.
Drinking water is very important. Drinking enough water cuts the bloating, so your abs can look their best. Drinking carbonated beverages causes bloating too, so keep those to a minimum.
But working your abs in a variety of ways is most important. You want to work the various muscles, so crunches alone are not sufficient. Vary your abdominal exercises, use different equipment and techniques to get the best results.
