How can i tone my stomach?
..I'm happy with my size and shape in general just wish to tone up my stomach.
I'm rubbish at crunches and sit ups etc. as i get bored very quickly. Is there any other way i can tone my abs? I enjoy more cardiovascular exercise...
Will swimming help?

You could try aqua aerobics its great cardio and really tones everywhere!

Swimming will help, but sit ups are also very good.

There is one thing to say, you will get many people saying do sit ups no that is wrong, do streches, stretch your stomach up and in.
when you do sit ups you are making the muscle hard and bulgy if you do the stretch it will make it flat and toned.

this can be applied for men and woman

go to the gym and get personal trainer?

stormin norman
while driving practice holding in your stomach. This will tone up the muscles without having to do a workout

Blue eyes
go to the toning tables!! think its about ÂŁ5 per hour..the machines do all the work for you!

Cailin Deas
Go to gym the best way to tone up and the trainers will telll you the best way to and get programme set up for you

retep g
The simplest way to get some tone on your tummy is just to hold it in, whenever you are out shopping, walking or even doing minor chores around the house. You'll find it is'nt so easy after just a few minutes but if you persevere it will bring results in no time at all. Good Luck.

Yes, swimming will help tone your muscles, and I recommend a fun activity to tone yourself, like rock climbing, karate, rollerskating, etc!

Of course, you could always "choose a better diet" (don't do anorexia), like say you ate too many chips, you could limit yourself to one portion a month.

Hope this helps u in ur fight to be toned! xD

Try and join a pilates class. It's a great way to tone your body

Hi there

There's no fad to this one just lots of sit ups. My advice is try to do about 150 a day but only do half sit ups or crunches as doing lots of full sit ups may damage your lower back. Make sure you drink plenty of water as well. If you join a gym there are plenty of machines that will help you develop your abs but in the end just plain old sit ups should do it.

Swimming is great fun, you must push yourself and not just doggy paddle around in circles. Lengths, fast, crawl and breast stroke. Go for it!

Get an exercise ball that could make things less boring...

Duck and twist during your daily routine. Reach with your left hand to things on your right and visa versa. If you feel like turning around to face something, see if you can do it with keeping your hips in place and twisting at the waist (warning: awkward when talking to other people, use only against inanimate objects). While walking or standing, pretend that something is coming toward you and you have to duck to get out of the way. Do this as often as you are comfortable or at times when it won't look weird. You can bend forward from the hips or, if you're really into it, bend at the knees too and really "sink" out of the way.

Lose Fat

Lift Weights. The more muscle your body has, the more calories your body burns, even at rest. Many people are afraid of getting huge due to weight lifting. This is meaningless. You will NOT gain a lot of mass if you're not taking in a lot of calories as well. Also keep in mind that most of the huge people you see on TV or in print achieve that state by going on high protein and high carb diets. They increase their caloric intake specifically to bulk up. So the fear of bulking up should NOT be a reason to not lift weights. As a rule of thumb, the larger the muscle the more energy it will burn to sustain itself. Therefore the most effective muscle groups to work for fat loss are large muscle groups: thighs and hamstrings, the back, and the chest. You can also lift your body weight without going to a gym, through pushups, situps, chinups, etc.

Do Cardio. No matter how muscular your abs are that six pack isn't going to show if you cover it up with a layer of fat. Running, biking, swimming, stair climbing, jumping rope, tennis, volleyball, dancing, squash, playing dance dance revolution or any other activity that gets you moving and keeps you moving is a great way to burn fat. However, a cardio workout should be performed for at least 20 MINUTES to burn fat. Prior to this your body will simply run on it's stored energy, which results in minimal fat loss. If possible, cardio should be the first part of your workout routine as this will help you to burn more fat once you begin your your weight lifting and abdominal exercises.

Good Luck ; )

why dont you get an ab roller if your rubbish at sit ups these are supposed to help, or there are things you stick to your stomach that are supposed to tone you up,

though personally i would just stick with crunches and sit ups they are the most effective

Swimming will just give you manly shoulders lol.

Hi! I imagine that when you say you want to 'tone' your stomach, you mean you want a flat, roll-free stomach? If this is the case, there is a simple answer: cardio.

As you cannot target weight loss on any area of your body, you will need to do some good all-over cardio exercises to burn the excess fat. If you do no cardio, but lots of crunches, you will actually be bulking your waistline up with muscle. You say you are happy with your general size, good girl! However, obviously if you burn fat, it will probably be from all over your body, not just your stomach. Just to warn you!

To use myself as an example, I was very skinny when I was 18. I had a very flat stomach because I had hardly any body fat. I never did sit ups. However, the rest of me looked unhealthy! You could see my ribs - it was not nice. Now I've put on a few pounds and like my body shape, even if I get one little roll around my midriff when I sit down. I know that if I lost 6lbs, this roll would pretty much disappear. It's the same principle for you - don't take it to the extremes where you become very skinny, but burning some fat is your first step.

Some good excercises that burn fat and simultaneously work your abdominal muscles are skipping, jumping on a trampette and using a stepper (especially those like the Lateral Thigh Trainer that move in various directions). Swimming is a great all-over workout; it works more muscles simultaneously than anything other activity.

Once you have burnt some fat, you may still wish to build some muscle in your stomach area. I have included some links below with good exercises for this. A gym ball is definitely a good idea. If you don't like the sound of that, there are plenty of exercises you can do using only your own body, with no need for apparatus. If (like me) you never know if you're doing it right and want something you know will work, try getting an ab-trainer you can use at home. Argos do some great ones, starting from ÂŁ6.49! Most of these exercises work the upper abs, but the majority of excess in women is actually the lower abs (e.g. beneath your belly button). A good way of working these muscles out is to lie flat on your back on a bed or bench, with your knees bent over the edge. Straighten your legs out, hold them together, and slowly raise them so that they are level with the rest of your body. Hold for 5-10secs, then slowly lower. Do as many reps as you can.

For quick-fix solutions, you should also keep an eye on certain types of food, such as beans, broccoli, cauliflower, pasta, pastries and potatoes, which may bloat you.

I hope this helps! :-)

I do a 100 crunches three times a day, it rly helps and youll see a change in about two weeks, and the workout is really easy you can almost do it any were and it takes less then 5 mins. good luck =)

The Swiss ball is a good accessory for those boring sit up's which do work! ..... I hate doing them too ! but you do see results. So the Swiss ball hopefully will keep you entertained!! lol if you can manage to stay on it long enough! lol..
The thing about Swiss style exercise balls is that they are inherently unstable. Sit on one, especially for the first time, and you’ll wobble like a jelly. That’s why exercise balls are so effective when it comes to core strength.
Your body responds naturally and automatically to this instability, working to keep you from falling off. With regular Swiss ball exercise, back and abdominal muscles used to keep you balanced become stronger,and definitely tones up that tum! go for it babe.xx

I do a lot of running because like you I get fed up easily. While running I put the world to rights and I look good when I go swimming. It really is easy just put a pair of trainers on and go.
Go for it , enjoy

Sit ups!

Yes, swimming is good for the whole body. You could also try Tai Chi or Yoga and focus on strengthening core muscle groups.I've always enjoyed the slower pace of these. Tap dancing or Latin dance have always helped me with legs and stomach toning. Simple pelvic floor exercises done throughout the day would help too and be no bother.

do stomach exercise. if you have excess fat around there, you would have to lose weight first before you can see results.

When you do any bending exercise or knee ups when standing or sitting remember always to tighten the tummy muscles first.

In fact tighten the tummy muscles before doing any form of exercise that should remind your tummy muscles to work.

Do this when swimming too - I'm sure it will benefit you.

Get one of those big bouncy fitness balls! They are great fun and if you can stop giggling long enough they make sit ups etc much more fun!

I hear Indoor cyclying gets the abs firm?

There is no such thing as 'toning', you can build up the muscles by doing crunches and sit ups, but getting a flat stomach requires fat loss which can't be targetted to a specific area of the body. Cardio is a good starting point, combine this with healthy eating and you'll be well on your way.

hello there!

i have a fun one that i do every chance i get, usually 4 times a week for half hour in mornings...or when ever really.

all you need is a tennis ball, bare with me here...x

put on some music that you love and will keep you in a fun mood, now sit on your bum on the ground not ona cushion...

then you put your feet flat on the floor so you knees are bent up, now....you put the tennis ball in between your knees, ( the object here is not to drop the ball, so you gotta keep it held tight, ) you might wonder why put anything between your knees never mind a ball!! its coz the width of you knees to you pelvic muscles with the ball there is the perfet position you need to be in for this to work, also gives you something to focus on,

now,,,lol sitting up straight and your tummy in, (hold your arm out if you want them done too, or else just put your arms anywhere comfy for you, ) music on?? i hope so!! hehe

just slowly begin to lean back slowly, rolling your spine (do not lean back straight it'll hurt...) then when you fell a pull in your muscles, slowly sit back up, repeat as much as you want, just remember, keep tummy in, and dont drop that ball!!! lol x x

There is no magic weight-loss pill, supplement, fad diet, or juice. The ONLY way to lose weight is to consume less calories than you burn. Brad Pitt didn’t get buff for Fight Club by drinking Green Tea, and you won’t either.

Hoodia, on the other hand, has been scientifically proven to reduce hunger. The problem with hoodia is that it is not regulated by the FDA, and studies have indicated that most products claiming to contain hoodia actually have little, if any, pure African hoodia. Those products that did contain hoodia were inconsistent from one capsule to the next. I have found two brands that seem to be consistent and effective, Relacore and PowerNutra.

Exercise doesn’t mean you have to join a gym or go to an aerobics class, although I would highly recommend it. To burn fat, you should exercise at a moderate pace for at least thirty minutes. A moderate pace is one in which your heart rate is elevated but you’re not so winded that you can’t carry on a normal conversation. That is the mode in which your body burns fat stores. High heart-rate cardio work tells your body to burn glycogen and store the fat for later—you don’t want that.

Walk for 30 minutes every day including weekends, Mondays, and Fridays. Do at least 30 minutes of weight training each week. Do 60 minutes of additional, higher intensity cardio each week. You don’t need additional equipment—infomercial products like the Ab Lounger, Sauna Belt, etc. are all worthless gimmicks so don’t waste your money.

Eat breakfast, and eat five small meals per day instead of three big meals. Don’t starve yourself during the day—many low-calorie diets fail because when you go hungry, your body switches to “famine mode” and stores fat for the coming drought. On the other hand, if you don't wake up ravenous, then you ate too much the day before. Stop eating at least two hours before you go to bed.

Cut back on the foods you eat with high fat and high sugar content. Eat only single servings (read the label) with less than 3 grams trans fat and 3 grams sugars. Your primary source of sustenance should be grilled boneless skinless chicken breasts and canned tuna (in water, not oil). No dairy (except low fat cottage cheese occasionally); no processed meats; no heavy sauces; no chips, cookies, sodas, breads, etc.

Another trick I’ve learned about reducing calories is to “clean the pipes”. You can do this by eating more raw vegetables and fresh fruit. You can also streamline the process with fiber supplements. I like Metamucil and Dr. Schulze Intestinal Formula.

Other than a daily multi-vitamin like Centrum advanced Formula, the only other supplement recommended is an Omega-3 fish oil capsule like Carlson Laboratories Super Omega-3 Fish Oils. Omega-3 is a vital fatty acid that our bodies don’t produce. Omega-3 benefits are wide-ranging and proven by clinical studies. From heart health to depression treatment to pregnancy health, Omega-3 benefits are too good to ignore if you are interested in health.
