Most healthy women strive to achieve a flat or flatter stomach (check out our abs workout for women at home). The image of a flat stomach, wrongly or rightly, has always been associated with words like “healthy”, “fit”, “in-shape”, “toned” and “sexy”. The pressure for women in today’s society to have the desired flat stomach , has always been strong. When you hear females talk, especially those that have had children and seen their bodies change after childbirth, the common conversation theme seems to be that a flat stomach is the ultimate achievement. I’ve literally lost count of the number of drastic diet plans I’ve heard women undertaking to achieve the flat stomach status.
So …. should women really be as concerned about having their shapely bodies? Is it imperative that they exercise and diet to the point that their six pack abs show? Personally, I don’t think it is. In my opinion, society should reset its psychological goals. Instead of rewarding and celebrating females for achieving a size zero (US) or size 8 dress size (UK). Instead, why not promote the sexy desired goal to be fit, healthy and happy? If you are fit, healthy and happy, then, in my opinion you are already living the dream! This is a far healthier mindset to live by.
But what if you still cannot escape your desires for a flat stomach? You are not alone!
Check out my simple and quick Abs workout below, to discover a quick way to achieve the more defined abs and flatter stomach you crave…..
