Lose Your Belly by Doing this One Classic Exercise

Are you looking for a way to get a tighter and leaner stomach?

Do you want your abdominals to shine through every time you take your shirt off?

The key to your six-pack could be in one classic exercise and get this: It’s not a crunch or a sit-up.

Let’s take a look at the move you need to start doing if you want to start carving that ripped midsection.

Push-Ups: The Belly Blaster for Fat Loss

Surprised?

Although the push-up focuses primarily on the chest muscles, it also requires a tight and contracted set of abs to perform correctly. Used on a consistent basis, the push-up can transform your midsection into something out of a magazine.

The key is form. Most people aren’t doing the push-up correctly. Here’s the breakdown with a video tutorial.

  • Place your hands beneath your shoulders – Not out in front
  • Bring your feet together and balance yourself on your toes
  • Keep your gaze towards the floor
  • When you push yourself off the ground, stop at the top of the movement
  • Forcefully contract your abdominals and tighten your glutes
  • Your hips should NOT be dipping or raised – Your body should look like a straight line
  • Focus the tension in the chest and abdominals as you slowly lower yourself
  • Stop when the upper arms are parallel to the ground
  • Return to the starting position, keeping your elbows bent AND your abs contracted

The Push-Up Challenge

Over the next 30 days, you are going to dramatically increase how many push-ups you can do while improving your waist line. Try this Push-Up Challenge starting today.

  1. Using the form mentioned above, perform as many push-ups as you can. If you can only do knee push-ups, that’s okay. They count too!
  1. Now, divide that number in half. So let’s say you were able to do 20 push-ups. Half of that would be 10.
  1. On Day 1 of the challenge, you will perform that number plus one. Using the example above, if your number is 10 (half of 20) then you will perform 11 push-ups on Day 1.

On each day after this, you will add just one push-up to the total that you’ll do. Again, using the example above, the next few days will look like this:

  • Performed 20 push-ups. Half of 20 is 10.
  • Day 1: 10 + 1 = 11 push-ups
  • Day 2: 11 + 1 = 12 push-ups
  • Day 3: 12 + 1 = 13 push-ups
  • And so forth and so on

Using the same example, at the end of your 30 days, you will be able to complete around 40 push-ups! Not to mention that your stomach will be tighter and leaner.
