Sweat: Envied Abs

There is no easy way to transform and tone you stomach. Perfect abs are a result of a balanced/ nutritious diet, lots of cardio, and strategic muscle movement exercises. I find that sculpting fab abs is one of the more difficult body areas to tone, just because the stomach is so susceptible to bloating, and air retention. 

Our Abs, are like every other muscle group; They can be overworked. When the abs are overworked they will swell and become more likely to tear. When overworked, the abs will begin to build up and bulk up creating the appearance of a thicker then desired mid section. To combat bulky abs it is important to switch up your ab routine, maintain a strong posture, and to perform movements that focus on all of the muscle groups with in the abs.

This is a challenging core workout that incorporates the whole body while targeting the midsection. Inspired by the Tracy Anderson Method

Feed your abs right, to gain the best results of your ab workouts. The probiotic bacteria in yogurt helps with digestion which in turn promotes a flatter stomach. Limit your soda intake as carbonation puts air into your stomach making it appear fuller than it is. Watch for simple refined carbs and food sensitivities as these will cause swelling in your internal organs.

Eat more cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, asparagus, and peppers. And swap white bread for whole grains. Adding more fiber to your diet is an easy way to promote a leaner torso.
