Yey! So, you finally did it — tipped the scale from overweight to normal. Congratulations! While you may be in the mood to celebrate the coming of your new bundle of joy, and your fast progress to regaining your pre-baby figure, that jiggly skin under your arm, and that flappy piece of skin hanging by your tummy may be spoiling your otherwise lovely body revenge.
5 Ways To Tighten Your After-Weight-Loss Skin
Don’t think for a second that you missed your target. All you need is a re-evaluation of your weight loss goals and a readjustment in your dieting program which is, in fact, necessary now that you’ve shed a significant volume of excess weight. Here are 5 things you should seriously consider adding to your weight loss routine:
1. Add weight training to your workout routine
If you find yoga more interesting than performing several sets of kickbacks and bench presses then, go ahead and get a yoga mat and start off by doing the more simple poses. As a matter of fact, you could have prevented a lot of that excess skin that you are seeing now if only you’ve incorporated these muscle-building exercises earlier. Don’t worry, it’s not too late to make it right.
Here are some flat tummy exercises after delivery that you must try:
- This is a core strengthening exercises that was derived from yoga. Lie with your tummy against the floor. Slowly bring up your upper body so that it is supported by your elbows. Do this while your legs are stretched below you with only your toes propped up against the floor.
- Belly Twister. Still facing the floor, stretch your arms so that your palms are against the floor and your elbows straight. Keep your legs stretched, toes against the floor. Lift your right leg as you fold it to your abdomen, bending your knee. Then stretch as far back as you can with your knees straightened. Keep repeating to 8 counts then, use your left leg next.
- Do jumping jacks. Haven’t you already heard? One of the fastest, most effective ways to lose weight is to jump up and down. You can either do this literally jumping around or, with a skipping rope or, a trampoline.
