One of the questions we get asked most often is, “How can I achieve sexy abs!?”

There are several factors that go into a slim waistline. Sticking to a healthy lifestyle, drinking plenty of water and staying active all play key roles, but there are a few more pointers that can make a huge difference in your results.

In today’s video, we’re sharing our best tips for sexy abs!

Tone your entire core!

While you may think a tight tummy means doing tons of crunches, to really get the abs you’re after, you need to target your entire torso and lower body. This includes your abs, obliques, lower back, quads and booty!

Practice good posture

Not only does having proper posture help you look slimmer all around, but it also engages your abs and lower back all day long. Focus on keeping your spine long, shoulders back and heart open.

Nutrition is key!

Fitness and nutrition go hand-in-hand. Regardless of how intense your workout sessions are, you’ll see amazing results when your nutrition falls into place. Stick to what we call a Lean, Clean and Green lifestyle that includes plenty of lean protein, greens, veggies, fruits and healthy fats. You deserve to fuel your body right!

Eat de-bloating foods

If you’re getting ready for an event, party or vacation, include plenty of naturally de-bloating foods into your day. Some of the best options include asparagus, ginger, peppermint and lemon. This will help you look and feel your best come the big day!
