Here’s a unique exercise to help flatten your abdomen while driving


This is essentially an uncomplicated exercise that you can perform anytime, anywhere to help get a flat abdomen over time.

Now I will say that this exercise does NOT enhance fat burning, but it CAN aid to flatten your stomach by strengthening your deeper transversus abdominis muscles and thereby “pulling in” a lazy abdomen (aka beer belly or “pooch belly”).

It implies doing an exercise called “ab vacuums”.

I believe it is a good time to start the habit of performing daily ab vacuums whilst driving daily or another time that would get you in the habit of doing them regularly. Just make sure that it doesn’t distract you from driving.

Essentially, ab vacuums can be performed anywhere and don’t have to be just for driving, but I’ve found that it helps me bring them to mind if I perform them at a specific time when driving frequently. This could be done even as you’re driving home from the gym every time, or possibly during your everyday commute to your worksite.

Ab vacuums are simple:

You can perform ab vacuums basically anywhere, at any time. You can do them while standing, seated (like, in a car), kneeling in a four-point stance, or even lying flat on the floor.

The movement is as simple as pulling your belly button in as far as you can by imagining you’re trying to touch your belly button to your spine and holding it in for 10-20 seconds at one time.

Start by inhaling greatly. Then, when you exhale, begin pulling the belly button in towards the spine and detain it there for 10-20 seconds whilst just taking short breaths. Go over for several holds.

Get in the habit of doing this at least 4-5 days a week while driving somewhere and you might find that this aids in flattenning your abdomen more by strengthening the transversus abdominis muscle (the deep abdominal muscles under the rectus abdominis) if you previously had a “lazy belly”.

Like I said, this workout doesn’t enhance fat burning. It just helps to flatten a round stomach that has lazy deep ab muscles.

If you want a true “six pack abs” form, you still need to shed off the body fat that covers your abs. That calls for a fully encompassing exercise routine (not just ab exercises), a strategic nutrition program, and the right mindset for accomplishment.
