What is the quickest way to tone my midsection?
Asked by anonymous on Oct 22, 2008 in Fitness




Answer

For most people, the lower abdomen is covered by a layer of fat, and so it will not look toned until that stored fat is burned. Use cardio-type exercise and a low-calorie diet to burn stored fat. And then, strength–training exercises that target the core muscles are used to tone the midsection. You must work all the abdominal muscles, including the rectus abdominis, transverse abdominis, and internal and external obliques, for 2 to 3 non-consecutive days every week. And then don't be surprised if it takes up to six months to see a difference. Learn about the top 10 most effective ab exercises form the Guide to Exercise at About.com.
