A Simple Exercise to Reduce a Saggy Belly

Do you aspire for a flat tummy? Let us accept the fact that losing extra fat from the tummy area is harder than any other part of the body. There are a bunch of ways to go about it: dieting, going to the gym, even some less conventional methods like the increasingly popular stomach vacuum. Getting a good result requires a lot of effort, time, and self-discipline. But perhaps you would like to know how to reduce a saggy belly easier.

I faced a similar problem, as well. After minor surgery, the doctors prohibited any physical activity. With minimum movement, the fat on the belly began to grow. My friend, a fitness trainer, suggested I do a simple set of movements every day. I cleared it with my doctor and gave it a try.

A Simple Exercise to Reduce a Saggy Belly

This exercise is based on simple hand movements. The exercise is ideal for those who work hard, the elderly, and people who are not involved in sports. No need to jump or get into strange positions; it is enough to follow the instructions.

  1. Stand up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Extend your arms out to the sides, palms up.
  2. Place your hands on your shoulders so that your elbows are perpendicular to your body line. Stay in this position for 5 minutes, trying not to move your elbows.

That’s all! Try to do this exercise at least 2-3 times every day. It will be difficult at first, your hands will feel heavy. But soon you will get used to it and, if you wish, increase the duration.

If this exercise seems too easy and you do not feel any tension in your muscles, you can make it a little harder. Lock your hands behind your head and stay in the position for 10 minutes.

The next difficulty level involves raising your arms straight above you and reaching as high as possible with your fingertips. Stay in the position for 15 minutes.

Finally, when the last exercise begins to feel easy, proceed to practice the most difficult one. Raise your arms above your head, palms together. Keep your arms close to the ears and stand like this for 20 minutes.

Not only does this technique help reduce a saggy belly, but it also helps lift and tighten the internal organs.

This exercise is truly a lifesaver, and the result is amazing when coupled with a properly balanced diet. Although it won’t make your abs show but it will make your tummy flatter.


I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.

I was recommended this web site by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble. You are amazing! Thanks!

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to
get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
