  • i work out at the gym on the cardio machines and weight machines and workout at home via ExcerciseTV on demand. They have an abundance of free programs for every part of your body.
    And yes, dancing will definitely tone and whittle your waist. Especially latin dancing

  • Sit on a bench, counter or table, so your legs are over the edge. Lean back to about 45 degree angle and rest on your hands and lift your knees to your chest. This is a backwards crunch that will focus on that baby pouch.

  • If your medical issue is due to prolapse or separated abs, you can still do pilates(I actually had both and it helps tremendously!!! YOu can PM me if you want details). Anyway, stuff like planks and pelvic tilts are really good. Also, I used to do Tae Kwon Do and kicking and punching is a good way to tighten up your stomach without actually "crunching."
