We pull belly muscles
Often, even young women accumulate body fat on the abdomen. However, in general, a woman can be very slim. Very often the protruding abdomen is not an indicator of overweight. Many people forget that a flat stomach becomes so, not only because of the absence of excess fat, but also because of the good condition of the abdominal muscles.
Why do body fat accumulate on my stomach?
The abdomen is considered the most healthy and normal when the abdominal wall protrudes slightly, but the abdomen itself remains flat. If the muscles are flabby, untrained, then sooner or later the stomach sags, begins to bulge strongly. Weak abdominal muscles are fraught with the fact that they can provoke such unpleasant consequences as omission of organs, deterioration of the stomach and intestines. After all, the correct location of the internal organs is based precisely on these muscles. In addition, their condition significantly affects the course of pregnancy and childbirth. That is why the abdominal muscles should be well strengthened.
When you begin to perform the appropriate exercises, remember that you can not strain too much in the process. This may trigger the development of a hernia or a dramatic stretching of the muscles. Also, almost do not bring the result of light exercises, even if done many times. Light classes should be complemented by more complex ones.
If you want to improve your posture, then exercises to strengthen the abdominal muscles can be combined with exercises for the back. Before you begin classes, review the diet. Do not eat sweet, flour, exclude pastries, fried, smoked. Eat small portions, but 5-6 times a day. Be sure to drink one and a half liters of water a day, and this should be clean water, not sweet juices and compotes.
The combination of massage and exercise
Massage can be safely carried out at home. It is useful in that it improves blood circulation, prevents the appearance of new fat cells, tightens sagging skin. Do massage need at a time when you take a shower. It is necessary to use a washcloth with a stiff bristle brush. Start doing circular motions, writing out G-8 on problem areas. Finish can be easy tingling. If you are worried about cellulite, then after a shower, lubricate the skin with a special oil or cream.
After that, start exercises for the abdominal muscles.
• Lie on the floor, stretch your arms. Gradually lift both legs. Stop for five to ten seconds. Slowly lower your legs. Repeat several times (minimum ten).
• When lying down, bend your legs. Raise your body so that you can touch your knees with your hands. After that, return to the original position. Do this exercise ten times.
• Lie on the floor. Lift your legs, bending them, and then take a bottle filled with water, and squeeze it between your feet. Straighten your legs. Your main task is not to drop the bottle.
Perform these actions daily.
