This Week: How to strengthen your back for a firmer tummy.
When it comes to getting a firm tummy, most people only do abs exercises ignoring their lower back. A strong lower back makes your body more upright and in turn pulls the tummy in naturally. Pelvic bridge is a basic exercise for the lower back. Lie down on your back with your knees bent, then lift your buttocks up and hold for two seconds. Then go back down to starting position slowly. You can make it more challenging by holding it longer or do it with one leg up. Repeat this process daily and you’ll soon have a flat, firm stomach.
