New Mom's belly blasting
Since its Mothers Day, I figured I'd make a day out of ways moms can see themselves. If you have ever went through the trials of pregancy,most women have had a little excess bulge that the bundle of joy left behind. Since nobody wants to invest in a whole new wardrobe,I researched a few ways you can work off that mid-section so that you can get back to looking FAB in no time(with dedication of course)!
The Bicyle Crunch Excercise
Lie flat on the floor with your lower back pressed to the ground.
Put your hands beside your head.
Bring your knees up to about a 45-degree angle and slowly go through a bicycle pedal motion.
Touch your left elbow to your right knee, then your right elbow to your left knee.
Breath evenly throughout the exercise.
The Captain's Chair Exercise
Start with legs dangling and slowly lift your knees in toward your chest.
The motion should be controlled and deliberate as you bring your knees up and return them back to the starting position
Abdominal Crunch on an Exercise Ball
Sit on the exercise ball with your feet flat on the floor.
Let the ball roll back slowly and lie back until your thighs and torso are parallel with the floor.
Contract your abdominals raising your torso to no more than 45 degrees.
To work the oblique muscles, make the exercise less stable by moving your feet closer together.
