Total-Body Benefits of Tighten Tummy Build Abs Workout
Stacked Workout : Exercise stacking refers to ordering your workouts in such a way that each movement supports off the one it follows. When you do exercises back-to-back in a little circuit and then you take a break at the end of the circuit before repeating, usually for two to three times through, you are building up your resilience as well as increasing challenge in your workout each time. During a stacked workout you perform the first exercise in the set for 30 second and then rest. Then you add the second exercise, so that you're completing both moves back to back. By stacking the exercises that way it allows for maximum results in terms of muscle sculpting and fat loss without having to lift super-heavy weights or doing lots of extra cardio. The gradual repetition is a really great benefit and enables you to become more confident with each move.
Recipes & Nutrition : Eating a healthy balanced diet accompanied by regular exercise is essential in maintaining physical and mental health and well-being. Not only are these effective in preventing excess weight gain or in maintaining weight loss, but healthier lifestyles are also associated with improved sleep and mood. 20% of your results are down to Exercise and 80% are due to good Nutrition.
Making balanced lifestyle choices takes practice, but once you realize how good it feels to provide the body with healthy habits and proper nutrition, you'll understand why I always emphasize that food is essential for fitness! You don’t have to be overly strict or hard on yourself, though if you want my advice, you should always make sure that you are maintaining good nutrition as much as possible! It’s also ok to have a special meal once in a while, as long as you stay consistent with your goals and keep on track!

Celebrate Your Journey : Be Confident in yourself! Confidence is all about having a belief and a positive regard for yourself and your ability to succeed. Confidence means feeling sure of yourself and your abilities, not in an arrogant way but in a realistic and secure way. Confidence isn't about feeling superior to others. It's a quiet inner knowledge that you're capable of achieving whatever you want to - physically and emotionally. Confident people feel ready for everyday challenges like tests, performances, and competitions. There are so many simple things we can do everyday to slowly build up our own personal confidence!

Wide Leg Drops with Bands : Leg Drops are an abdominal exercise that strengthen your lower abs and help train your core stability to strengthen and protect your lower back. Add a long band, place it in the middle of your feet and then hold it in both hands. Keep your legs apart and extend them out to the side. Tuck your hips under tight, so that there is no gap on the mat! Bring your legs in nice and tight and then out and down again. Make sure your belly button is pulled in towards your spine. Gently release. It is all about control! Flex those feet as you Feel the BURN!
Star Hollow Body Crunches : The hollow hold is a serious core exercise that helps you build strength and stabilization in your abs and back muscles. Having a strong and steady core will help you make those total-body movements that require you to transfer weight from your upper to lower body. Most crunches, especially sit ups with legs elevated, are great at targeting the abs and upper body!
Take your body down onto the ground with your legs lifted up. Lift up your chest and make those crunches. Lift your arms and head up, lifting up to the top part of your body. Keep a starfish position and extend your arms nice and wide. Gently release and crunch up! You will feel amazing at the end of this workout! Just Be You!
Full Sit Up Push with Weights L & R : Lie on the ground and push that weight in your hands up to the sky! Start on one side and alternate each side keeping your knees bent. Squeeze from side to side and as you lift up do a sit up for each move. Squeeze your core and maintain a slow and controlled rhythm as you do this exercise. Bring your elbows in towards your waist. Keep pushing and smile with every single rep that you do! You Got This! Keep that body moving!
Sit Ups are classic abdominal exercises that use your body weight to strengthen and tone those tummy and Ab muscles! Sit Ups promote good posture by working your lower back and glute muscles. With a larger range of motion, Sit Ups target more muscles than crunches and static core exercises. This makes them an ideal addition to your fitness program. Sit Ups are traditional core exercises often used for their simplicity and effectiveness.
A strong core helps to keep your body balanced and stable as you move throughout your daily and athletic activities. Good balance makes you less likely to fall and injure yourself. Sit Ups make your hips and back more flexible, which increases mobility and relieves tension and tightness. Increased flexibility improves circulation and concentration, reduces stress and boosts energy levels. Building a strong, solid core makes it easier to keep your hips, spine and shoulders in alignment, which helps to improve posture.
Leg Extension on Band with Leg Drop : You need one long band with both feet in the band and then bring your knees in towards your chest. Hold the band in your hands just in front of your face. Extend and flex your foot with every movement. Bring your knees in, stretch your legs out and take them almost down to touching your heels on the mat. Feel that BURN!
Resistance bands are particularly useful for lower body workouts, including the legs and glutes, because they force you to move with better form and produce power from the right muscles,
