With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine showed how anyone – at any age – can achieve great abs. Yourwellness Magazine pointed out, ‘One of the biggest weight and fitness goals that women have is to tone up their abs. Having a flat, toned and sexy stomach seems like a direct route to sexual wellness and wellbeing, and so women are often desperate to find that magic formula to help them achieve these. Not all exercises lead to nicer abs, however, and you need to ensure that you are targeting your core muscles if you want to have that movie star and athlete style of flat, toned tummy.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/10/get-sexier-abs-simple-exercises/#sthash.78ItUYUH.dpuf)
Yourwellness Magazine outlined three tips for toning abs:
1. Burn off fat. It’s hard to see any muscle definition if the tummy is covered in fat, so cardiovascular exercise and a healthy diet is required.
2. The belly button to the spine move. Practise pulling the belly button in towards the spine on a daily basis. This trains the tummy to be naturally pulled in in the middle.
3. Downward dog with a plank. Keep switching between plank and downward dog for tight and toned abs.
