Exercise for reducing tummy
Please suggest an exercise which can reduce the tummy diameter. Thanks
There is no such thing as "spot reducing", however, keep in mind that abdominal strengthening exercises will help to firm the stomach muscles but one must be consistent in performing such exercises. Only aerobic-type exercises (i.e., walking and cycling) will help reduce unwanted body fat. You may wish to review to the question "Getting in Shape for the Summer" posted to the Exercise & Fitness panel. This question summarizes the benefits of a well-rounded exercise program.
