Specific abdominal exercises to melt belly fat

The famous abdominal muscle exercises are particularly recommended for a flat, fat-free stomach. In addition to strengthening the muscles in the abdominal area, these exercises promote posture. They help the person stand more upright.

3 stomach areas to work on

The abdomen is made up of several muscles divided into 3 main sections: upper, lower and lateral (oblique). Regardless of the exercises chosen, it is important to train the 3 parts of the abdomen.

Some examples of abdominal exercises:

– Upper abdomen: In these exercises, the person lies on their back with their legs raised and then brings their back to their legs. It is also possible to do these exercises with open arms or with a plastic ball. Remember to always tape the lumbar region (lower back) to the floor.

– Lower Abdominals: In this category of training, the person keeps the upper body still and brings the legs to the body. There are many variations such as lifting the torso and legs at the same time, hanging from a bar by the arms, and working the legs (raising to the torso).

– Lateral Abdominals To strengthen these abdominal muscles, lie on your back with your lumbar area well stabilized. Put your hands behind your head and bring your knees to your elbows. Then repeat the movements as if you were riding a bicycle.

– Isometric exercises. These exercises are also very important because they strengthen the abdomen and lumbar region. An example is the “plank,” where the person lies face down and weight is placed on the forearms and feet. Hold the “plank” position as straight as possible for a few minutes, pause, and then repeat the exercise a few times.
