Benefits of These Muffin Top Exercises

You need to try these muffin top exercises. The results are amazing

Many of you love to know how each of the exercises actually help.

And I love that so much!

It shows that you are curious and there is really nothing better than a curious mind.

So, with that in mind, here’s an overview of each of these muffin top exercises.

 

Muffin Top Exercises: 1. Side Plank Pull:

This exercise is a variation of the traditional plank.

It’s beneficial if you’re trying to get rid of a muffin top because it strengthens the core.

When your core is strong, those muscles help pull in your mid section.

The more sucked in your midsection, the less the muffin top look.

And the less the muffin top, the slimmer the waist.

Cha-ching!

Muffin Top Exercises: 2. Plank Jacks:

Plank jacks have all the benefits of traditional planks and then some.

As in, plank jacks add in a cardio component to the workout.

Think of this as a two for one.

You strengthen your core muscles and you burn fat at the same darn time.

Don’t you just love exercises that give you extra bang for your buck?

Muffin Top Exercises: 3. Russian Twists:

Russian twists have a similar benefit to the side planks.

Specifically, they help tone all the muscles in the mid-section.

You might be worried about doing russian twists because they incorporate the obliques.

More on why you want to be careful of over-training the obliques here.

However, for the purposes of this workout, you have nothing to worry about.

We only do russian twists for 1 minute with body weight only.

That is not enough to cause your obliques to jump out like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s.

Muffin Top Exercises: 4. Jumping Oblique Twists:

Jumping oblique twists are a two for one.

They moderately work the core but primarily add a cardio component.

The cardio components of this workout are very important because they torch fat!

Muffin Top Exercises: 5. Bicycles

I love bicycles.

They were one of my favorite workouts for my mid-section for a very long time.

I eventually got bored of them.

Yet, they are so effective for toning the abs and mid-section!

I need to get back to doing them more often to be honest.

Muffin Top Exercises: 6. Raised Leg Crunches

Raised leg crunches are a more intense variation of traditional crunches.

You can make your raised leg crunches more difficult in a few ways.

One way is to do the movement veeerryyy slowly and hold at the top.

Oh it burns!

Muffin Top Exercises: 7. Static squat torso twists

Okay, please don’t be deceived by how easy this exercise looks.

It can get quite intense.

In fact, the first time I learned about it, I wanted to skip doing it.

Then for whatever reason, I decided to try and OH MY GOSH!

I couldn’t not believe how much I loved doing this!

I know that sounds weird but I really do enjoy working out.

It is truly a joy to be able to share my love of exercise with you guys!

These are some of the very best muffin top exercises that you can do.
