Tummy tightening exercises to get rid of belly overhang
Have you always been troubled by your overhanging belly that shows up in all your favourite outfits?
Well, if you wish to flatten it out, you are going to do some hard work. But, it comes with the amazing rewards of a flatter tummy and increased strength.
What’s great about these gym workouts is that they are not jus abs exercises, rather compound movements which engage your core along with more muscle groups which helps burn more fat.
These exercises are best performed at the gym, however, you can also do them at home with the right few equipment. Let’s get started!
1. Kettlebell goblet squat
Make sure you warm-up for at least 10 minutes before beginning your workout. For this exercise, hold a kettlebell to your chest and stand upright. Now, keep your core tight, push your hips back, and squat down to parallel. Drive through your hips and heels – this will further flex your quads and glutes. Complete 3 sets of 12 reps each.
2. Goblet lateral lunge
Stand tall and hold a dumbbell up to your chest. Step out to the side with one leg, while straightening your trailing leg. Firmly plant your heel and push your hips back. Sit as low as you can. Perform 3-4 sets of 8 reps for each leg. Make sure you choose the weight of the dumbbells based on your strength and capacity. You can increase the load as your strength improves.
3. Landmine meadows row
Place a barbell inside the landmine attachment. If you don’t have one, anchor it against the corner of a wall. Now stand perpendicular to the bar. Keep your chest tall, core tight and hinge forward at your hips. Grab the end of the barbell with an overhand grip with your other arm pressed against your knee. Leading with your elbow, drive it back towards your hip. Straighten your arm fully, and get a solid stretch in your shoulder.
4. Dumbbell push press
Grab a pair of dumbbells and hold them up at shoulder height. Your palms should be facing each other. Dip into a quarter squat with your core tight. Rise quickly with the weight up over your head. Complete 3-4 sets of 8 reps.
5. Bench garhammer raise
Position yourself on a flat bench. Grip the top firmly with your hands. Bend your knees at 90 degrees and pull them towards your face. Return to the starting position before performing another rep. Complete 3 to 4 sets of 15 to 20 reps. Make sure you do not hurt your back.
