The Flat-Belly Workout

Boat Pose

“This is my go-to pose for fighting lower-belly pooch—an area that can be really hard to tone, especially after you’ve given birth.”

Sit with your knees bent, feet flat on a mat, and hands on the ground. Lean your upper body back and lift your legs so your body forms a V. Stretch your arms forward, palms facing in. Tighten your lower-ab muscles while keeping your shoulders relaxed, back straight, and chest lifted. Lengthen your legs and engage your inner thighs. Hold for 5 slow, deep breaths, then lower your legs. Do 3 reps.
