We’ve come to the last of our recent Trainer Q&A questions – this week, we’re answering Bocksnash’s question (from Instagram):
Mummy tummy struggles – what’s the best gentle exercises to tone post baby belly and love handles?
Side planks are a great way to tone the obliques, but make sure that you engage your core while you do them – pull your tummy button towards your spine. Also try and V-hold – sitting with your knees bent, roll down so that the top of your trousers touch the floor, and focus on engaging your lower core.
For a simple standing exercise that can be done at any time, stand with your weight back through your heels, reach your hand down the side of your leg towards your knee, then repeat on both sides.
