Are saddlebags getting in the way of your hourglass figure? Looking for the best midriff workout that can slim your waist once and for all? We scoured the web for the best workout moves to whittle out that Kim K waist.
I’ll be sharing with you the best exercises to get rid of the stubborn abdominal fat, without any complicated tools. You can do all these exercises while you’re binge-watching Fleabag!
To get rid of belly fat and get a defined waist, you’ll need exercises that target the obliques. Specifically, you’re looking for compression of the internal and external oblique muscles. This muscle group is responsible for stability, twisting motions, and side-bending movements. So you’ll find these motions incorporated in these five simples workouts.
Knee pull up
Sit upright and move towards the edge of your chair. Place your feet in front of you. Lift your knee into your abs using your hands for support. You should feel a pull in your lower abs.
Double knee pull up
This exercise will get your full abdominal region working! Place your arms on your chair’s armrest for support. Lift both of your knees toward your chest. Do your best not to lean into your knees, let your abs do all the work.
If your chair does not have an armrest, hold the seat of the chair with your hands.
Oblique knee lift
This move is my favorite but also the hardest to do! You will be using the same motion as the last one; however, you will want to lean to one side. This will target your love handles and the sides of your abdomen.
Repeat the motion until you begin to feel a burn. Then, lean to the other side and repeat.
Keep your feet flat on the floor and stretch your arms out to one side. Then, lean and reach the opposite foot with your hand, like you’re chopping some wood. Repeat the movement while alternating sides after each rep.
Pull up yourself
If you have a chair with wheels, roll its back to the wall for this exercise to keep it from moving. Place your arms on the armrests and lift the bottom of your body. As you do, use your abs to pull your knees up and in. Hold this position for as long as you can and then return to a sitting position.
