Muffin top refers to the visible fat above the waist line of a skirt or pant, usually with tight-fitting low-waisted trousers. This is a challenge for many people trying to lose weight, and while it seems proper to do exercises that focuses on that part alone, it is also important to have a general weight loss regimen to create a balance. Cardio exercises are also very effective for weight loss. Below are 3 moves to get rid of your muffin top:
1. Side Bends
Stand upright, with your feet, hip-width apart and your arms lying closely by your sides. With your back straight and head up, reach one arm down to your toes and the other arm towards your waist while you place your arm on your hip. Once that is done, switch sides, with one arm up and the other down. Repeat and keep alternating sides.
2. Standing twists
To do this, place your hands behind your head, and keep your elbows out wide and knees slightly bent. Then, isolate your core, ensuring your hips are intact. Twist to one side, then work on the other, alternating sides.
3. Jack knives
You can do this on a floor or a bench. Lie down, with your legs outstretched above your head and your toes pointing upwards. Lift your arm towards your toes while you raise your leg to a 45 to 90-degree angle and your shoulders off the floor. Now, bring back your arms over your belly button, so that your body looks like a jack knife. Return to the original position with your legs and arms stretched out. Repeat the process for as long as you can.
To see the effective results of these three moves, it is important that you also consider your diet plan. You can see a nutritionist to know what to eat and what to avoid.
