bosumountainclimberMonday Motivation:
GOOD POSTURE, EXERCISE AND DIET MAKE GREAT ABS!

Nutrition and fitness experts all agree that flat abs are made possible with the combination of good posture, the right exercises, and a healthy diet. Just in time for swimsuit season, here are some tips to get you started:

  1. Good posture: Stand tall, don’t slouch. By bringing your shoulders back and chest up, the abs pull themselves in. Yoga and Pilates classes are great for core strength & improving posture.
  2. Exercise: You need a mixture of cardio exercises to burn belly fat and strength training to tone those abdominal muscles. Plank is one great core-strengthening move.
  3. Healthy Eating: Avoid high-sodium pre-packaged foods and sugary snacks.  Be sure to drink lots of water and try making just one healthier choice at each meal.  Over time, small changes can make a big difference! Do you feel like “healthy foods” are too expensive? Check this out!
