These stomach exercises for a flatter tummy are all about developing core body strength. This is important for giving your whole body the foundation it needs. Without a powerful midsection you can’t have very strong arms or leg power either.

Important: Curvy Goddess you need to incorporate a well-rounded program to see the flatter tummy. So with Pilates incorporate some resistance training for your bones and to build muscle to prevent sluggish metabolism.

So what are the best Pilates stomach exercises for a flatter tummy?

There are absolutely tons of Pilates exercises but here are two you can start with:

1. The Hundred – Start in the classic crunch position, except that your arms should be at your sides instead of behind your head. Avoid curving your back.

You’ll want to bring your knees into your stomach, and make sure your ab muscles are engaged during this. From there, lift your neck and bring your head down so that you are viewing your stomach. Make sure your neck is relaxed though. We call this the “floating head”.

Then raise your arms slightly, but don’t go farther than you are able. Some people might not be able to go more than 3 inches and that’s okay. Proceed to raise and lower your arms five to ten times. The stronger you get, the more repetitions you will be able to handle.

2. Crisscross – Again, assume the classic crunch position. Then slowly raise your head and shoulders above the mat. Lift your knees towards your midsection and keep your hands in back of your head to stay steady.

Gradually turn to the right side, pushing your left elbow in close enough to touch your opposite knee. At the same time straighten your left leg. Then return to the original position and do the same movement on the other side.

Why are these stomach exercises so effective?

Because they target the deeper abdominal muscles, which is important for stability.

So for a flatter tummy incorporating Pilates stomach exercises along with a more rigorous workout a few days a week and eating right will melt the belly fat. Just be consistent and have fun with your routine.
