3. DOUBLE LEG LIFTS:
Double Leg Lifts are a Pilates exercise that strongly works your core. By keeping your legs firmly together, you transfer most of the work toward your abs. This is more challenging than most Pilates exercises because you have to keep your legs straight. Most trainers call this the Mermaid exercise.
How To Do:
- Lie face up on the mat and put your palms under your head with elbows wide open.
- Spread the legs and raise them upwards keeping them joined at the heels and inhale.
- Exhale as you pull your torso up from the floor and crunch your tummy, feel the tension in your back
- muscles and the abdomen at this point.
- Hold this position for a few seconds and then slowly lower your torso in the mat.
- Repeat this exercise 10 times at a stretch.
4. WIDE-LEG CROSS SIT UPS:
How To Do:
- Lie flat on the ground with your legs spread out wide.
- Powerfully contract your core, raise your torso, and touch your right hand to your left foot.
- Return to the bottom. Extend your arms long over your head and stretch out your core; immediately crunch up and touch the ground in between your feet.
- Return to the bottom a 3rd time. Repeat the motion, touching your left hand to your right foot.
- Continue to alternate left, middle, right.
V-ups are basically situps with a wider reach. This exercise tones your abdominal muscles so you're sure to have a sleek figure once the belly fat is eliminated.
