Re: Belly problems
Jun 19, 2006
i think that i might have a solution for part of the problem. I was going to the gym all the time and doing crunches and stuff. and i also noticed that i stomach was doing the same thing. And i never could get abs no matter how many crunches that i did.

And this is part of what you might be doing wrong. Whenever you do crunches, its possible that you are pushing outward when crunching. Whenever you do crunches concentrate on sucking your belly button to the floor. keep your stomach tight and suck in, instead of pushing out whenever you do crunches. When i changed my routine, it helped me tremendously. And now for the first time, i have abs. :)

Too true!! That was definitely true for me.. I know especially when I used to do a lot of lower ab workouts, my lower abs got hard but would stick out.. now I kinda keep my abs tight and it has helped them. Unfortunately now my stomach is kind of having the opposite problem!! It's hard but not as smooth looking so for this doing more cardio always helps me.. and changing up my diet.
