Best drinking games | Beer drinking games | Best game to play with alcohol From Flat to Full in 30 Days (Without Weights) When I was pregnant, I had such a bubble butt! I absolutely loved the little extra padding down there. However, when I gave birth and starting breastfeeding, my bubble popped and I ended up with a booty as flat as a flapjack pancake! Where on Earth did my derriere go? While breastfeeding, it was hard enough to take in extra calories as I burned so much. I always heard that squats were the way to go, but I hated them. I did the following workouts each night for 30 days before I went to bed-10 reps with 3 sets. 1. 2. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, arms hanging at your sides.Squat down until your knees are bent about 90 degrees. 3. Begin in a wide stance with toes out at a comfortable angle.

5 Best Exercises To Torch Your Flabby Belly We know that there’s no great magic to achieving the perfect 6 pack, but rather it’s about a lot of hard work and clean eating. We also know that no matter how badly we’d like to believe otherwise, there’s no such thing as spot training. This doesn’t mean, however, that you shouldn’t be working out your abdominal muscles on a regular basis. They make up a very significant part of your core and if they aren’t engaging then you are doing yourself a big disservice. Although a classic, you’ve probably heard by now that crunches aren’t the most effective abdominal workout.

Lying on your back start with your head and shoulders curled up off the floor and your legs bent and 90 degrees off the floor.
