9 Killer Moves to Shrink Your Muffin Top

A question we get at Skinny Mom quite often is “how do women get rid of their muffin top?” Diet is a huge factor. It’s time to put down those sugary drinks (even the diet kind), and replace them with water. Trade in your chips and candy for veggies and fruit. Hit the cardio for 30 minutes a day three times a week and give these nine killer abdominal workouts a try. These moves target your core and get your heart rate up to help burn those dreaded calorie bugs!

Rest for 30 seconds to a minute between each set and new exercise.

Warm Up: It’s always good to start with a 10-15 minute warmup. Get those muscles nice and warmed up. Not only does this help prevent injury, but you get half of those 30 minutes of cardio in! If you’re at the gym, jump on the treadmill, stationary bike, elliptical or stair master. If you’re home, hit the neighborhood. Walk, run or bike 5-8 minutes one way then turn around and head back.
