Tip of the Day


Seriously, sucking your belly in the entire time you work out, throughout the day...heck whenever you can, will make a huge difference in the contour of your belly. The ab muscles are layered a little differently than other muscles. When you work your core, you can end up working deep inside, layers rather than the top pooch layer if you're not careful.
Sucking in your stomach, contracts the stomach - which flattens the layers of muscle together which allows you to work that top layer - and it is also building muscle memory - so that your brain learns that the flat, contracted sexiness is your everyday contour - thus giving you a flatter stomach, without any exercises....
Of course there are hundreds of other reasons including supporting the trunk and spine, and burning calories, but sucking it in can help flatten that trouble spot!
