Now that your baby has been born, you are probably stuck with a big mushy tummy! Over the next months, your belly will get flatter, but in order to get rid of that doughy look, you will need to turn to some abdominal exercises.
I believe abdominal exercises are the best exercises for tightening your stomach after having a baby. If you have been searching for some exercises to tighten your stomach, then I am here to help. I have been there and done that on two different occasions.
Instead of focusing on those sit-ups, you should focus on those transverse abdominals. The transverse muscles are the most overlooked group of abdominal muscles.
These are the deepest lying ab muscles. They act as a girdle to the middle section. They lie horizontally and help keep the organs in place. These are the muscles you need to target in order to get that flatter tummy!
See below for the top 7 exercises for tightening your stomach after having a baby…
7. No-Crunch Crunch
In order to do this exercises, you need to lay down on the floor. Keep your knees bent and the feet firmly placed on the floor. Take your hands and place them below and to the side of your belly button. Firmly take two fingers from both hands and put them on your lower abdomen. Start to gently draw your lower ab down towards the floor, but don’t move the pelvis. Raise your chest or hold your breath. As soon as you feel your muscles getting tight, stop drawing in your stomach.
