1 Tummy Trick You’ve NEVER Tried

by Kathy Smith


Here’s an amazing idea…You can tighten your tummy without any more dreaded crunches. In fact, today I want to show you a mini belly-strengthening trick that will grant impressive results. I’m willing to bet that it’s a trick you’ve never (ever) tried before.

It’s called the “stomach vacuum with a lift.” This isometric contraction has nothing to do with your Hoover, but this vacuum should be part of your weekly routine :) This trick helps strengthen your transverse abdominis, the abdominal muscle that I call your “built in spanx.”

Here’s how to start:

  1. While on all fours, contract your abdominal muscles, cinching your abs toward your spine. Be sure to not hunch your shoulders.
  2. Focus on lifting your knees ever-so-slightly off the mat by creating this small abdominal contraction. Your knees will lift only a minimal amount off the floor…if at all. Remember, the key is to create the lift with your abdominals, not by rolling your weight into your shoulders and lifting your hips.

After practicing this technique for a month or two, your jeans should zip up a little easier!
