I really need to tone up my stomach. I had my DS 22 months ago and while I'm happy with the rest of me well pretty much I just don't have time babysitter for Pilates classes.
I think I just need exercises that I can do at home, anytime during the day when I have the time..
Can anybody help?

I try and do the plank several times a day for 30 seconds. That does the trick!

I have a 8kg medicine ball, I hook my feet under the sofa, lean back and pass the ball side to side without touching the floor. you can feel it working.

Romcom- what is the plank?
Peachtrees- where can I get an 8kg medicine ball? Of do they come in different weights?
Sorry if this sounds clueless, but that's exactly how I am at the minute!

Try Jillian Michaels 30 minute shred

MsVenus Tue 24-Jun-14 21:31:27

Romcom Tue 24-Jun-14 21:43:51

Romcom Tue 24-Jun-14 21:44:25

Oh and 30 day shred is great. Hard but great.

30 day ab challenge. I'm on day 16 and I can already see a six pack forming at the top of my stomach and it's a lot flatter.

These look great!
Thank you all!

This is amazing, I've just started doing it and can already feel it helping.

Another vote for Naice's DVD - I could feel a difference after a week or so. It's pretty tough in parts but she gives you a simpler version for most exercises so its all manageable. Try to do at least 1-2 workouts 3-4 times a week to see a difference.

Pilates look on you tube get into the habit of pulling in your tummy. Try and go to a couple of pilates classes if there any where you live. Of ton community centres,libraries and church halls will have some

Tracy Anderson standing ab exercises are brilliant when you get the hang of it! Effective but not as painful as other ab work!

I looked at the 30 day ab challenge and plan to try it.
Can't even do one sit up though!
