#mituFIT: 5 Ways to Lose the Pooch

Want to get rid of belly fat from the comfort of your home?  Our #mituFIT health expert, Rawvana shows you how to target the right muscles for a tighter waist and abs with these five easy-to-do exercises. Repeat this series 3x at least 3 days a week. Ready, set, bikini time!

Basic Squat

Squats are one of the most effective exercises to strengthen your core and booty and get you ready to sport your favorite short shorts. Start with your feet shoulder-width apart and face forward. Extend your arms out and squat as if to sit on an imaginary chair. Arch your lower back and squat until your thighs are parallel to the floor. 15 reps.

Ankle Reach Crunch

Since the 90s crop top made a huge resurgence as a fashion staple, it’s time to target those upper abs. Lie on your back and extend your legs up, allow for a slight bend in your knees, extend your hands up and slowly reach up to the ceiling. 10 reps.

Kneeling Push-Ups

The push-up, while it targets chest and arms, is an excellent way to build strength for more advanced workouts. Start on your knees, maintain a straight back and place both hands on the floor shoulder-width apart. Slowly lower your chest to the floor, keeping your pelvis straight and abdominals tight, and push up to the starting position. 15 reps.

Extended Crunches

For a total core workout, lie on your back with your arms stretched behind your head. Flex your hips and curl your abs to lift your torso. Reach for your toes and alternate from side to side. This targets your abs and oblique muscles. 12 reps.

Spiderman Plank

Begin with the push-up position. Keep your hips low and bring your right knee up toward your left shoulder. Switch legs and repeat. 5 reps on each leg.
