How to Lose Belly Fat and Abdominal Flab the Easy and Most Convenient Way

Stubborn abdominal flabs are just... well stubborn. It does not only look bad physically but it also poses a lot of health concerns. Belly fat increases our susceptibility to certain chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. The following is a list of simple tips which you can do yo decrease and even lose abdominal flabs.

Proper posture.
This can do a lot of wonders for the way your stomach looks. If you want to have a flat stomach, you can start by standing up straight, put your shoulders back and tuck in your abdomen and buttocks. When trying to lose abdominal flab, you should start with the one that you can easily do. Not only will proper posture make you feel sexy but it is very healthy as well.

Proper breathing is also a key to losing that stubborn abdominal flab. Remember your music lesson? Proper breathing should be deep and should come from the diaphragm. This is the same breathing routine that most singers practice, FYI.

Pull in your abdominal muscles and hold for several seconds. You can do this while sitting, waiting for the traffic light to turn green or even while brushing your teeth. Make this a part of your routine. Tension in your abdominal muscles will strengthen it. This is the secret in most abdominal exercises so making it a part of your daily activities will do wonders.

Try the bicycle exercise. If you don't have a stationary bicycle, you could do this exercise as an alternative. Just lie on your back, put your hands beneath your buttocks and bend both knees up to your chest. Extend one leg straight up towards the ceiling. As you bend it with a pedaling motion (just like bicycling), extend the other. Repeat 10 to 20 times daily.

Just a warning though. Do not attempt to do this exercise if you suffer from back pain. You should always consult your doctor first before doing such exercises to ensure that you won't damage your back.
