How to Flatten the Lower Stomach

Save

Losing fat and flattening and toning the lower abdomen can be difficult, because this area is normally one of the first places where fat accumulates in the body. It takes more than simply finding one exercise that works the lower abdomen. Instead, you must engage in an overall fitness regimen, which includes exercising the entire body and paying attention to proper nutrition.

  • Reduce overall body fat. It's impossible to burn fat in one area of the body. Reducing overall body fat can be accomplished by performing cardiovascular workouts 3 to 5 days a week, performing resistance training 2 to 3 days per week, and consuming a diet that includes sufficient protein and is low in fat.

  • Avoid foods that cause bloating, as these can make the lower abdomen protrude. Some common culprits include foods that contain sugar: alcohol, soft drinks and even sugar-free gum. Also, common food allergies can cause indigestion and result in a bloating effect.

  • Perform exercises that target the lower abdomen. These should be done a minimum of 2 to 3 per week and include two to six sets. For a list of the best exercises for the lower abdomen, visit http://www.homeexercisecoach.com/best-abdominal-exercises.html.

  • Improve overall body posture. This will eliminate slouching and give you a slimmer appearance, as well as flattening your stomach. The best way to achieve this is to be conscious of how you are standing or sitting, being certain to carry yourself as erect as possible at all times.
