I don’t think my abs have ever been this flat. In fact, I know they haven’t — Even at my leanest points I always had a little pooch.
There are 3 things I’ve done recently (within the past year) – aside from my regular workouts & diet — that I feel are the reasons for it!
3 Flat Tummy Tips: (plus a bonus tip!)
- 1) gave up gum— I was like a 1-2packs a day gum-chewer … In the past few months, I’ve given it up and stopped buying it — you can read more about it the neg effects of gum & how I gave it up here: https://rebekahkathleenfitness.wordpress.com/2015/05/19/extra-evil-the-sticky-truth-about-gum/
- 2) stretching consistently — especially the hip flexors — my daily stretching routine is here in Fitnessrxwomen : http://www.fitnessrxwomen.com/training/workout-tips-advice/stand-taller-and-look-10-pounds-leaner/
- 3) Getting good deep sleep each night so I’m recovering fully and able to avoid cravings and have great workouts — I use Sleep1 by Nutrition53 every night to naturally calm down and sleep deep —http://rebekah.n53.club/products/sleep1-bottle?variant=3729944195
