Fitness is not a magic wand. To get a slender figure, you need to understand which exercises will benefit, and also know the correct implementation. That is why a flat stomach often remains a dream, even for those who regularly and do not spare themselves in the gym.

The abs are two layers of muscles: superficial and inner. Internal muscles (transverse and internal oblique) are more responsible for a flat stomach. Thoughtlessly “pumping the press”, we will not tighten the sagging tummy. To make the dream come true, together with fitness trainer Svetlana Horuzha, we will analyze the most popular, but absolutely useless exercises for the press.
