Hi, this is Madison Chase, your trainer to the stars and the star in you. So the question for today is how can you get a flatter tummy while in a seated position. So this is tips for tightening your tummy in a seated position. So if you notice I'm actually in a seated position. Now if you think about places where you are actually sitting most of your day you are either at work, you're in your car if you are in LA, you are in a lot of traffic so you actually could be tightening your tummy while you are on your way to work and you could also be tightening your tummy while you are hanging out with your friends let's say at a non-alcoholic happy hour so it's calorie free, you could also be tightening your tummy there. So we're going to do a couple of things. We're going to do four different things that you could actually do to tighten your tummy while in a seated position. So the first and simple thing is think about going from one light to another light, let's say you are on your way to work and it takes you 15 minutes. If you actually think about holding your tummy in from one light to another light, you are actually doing a contraction and you are contracting those abs so you are actually tightening your tummy on the driver over. So the next exercise that we could actually do is just a simple basic you could actually either put your hands behind your head if it's not so obvious depending on where you are, you could actually do a simple crunch by bringing that same knee to your same collarbone. You could either alternate, alternating is actually easier or you could do opposite elbow to opposite knee but the most important thing is you really want to make sure that you are tightening your tummy the entire time. You could actually do almost like a crab crunch. So these are four different exercises that you could actually do to tighten your tummy in a seated position. So the first exercise to recap is just really sucking your tummy in for one minute to two minutes or even 15 minutes if possible and make sure that you are inhaling and exhaling. We've got our forward crunch, we've got our side crunch, opposite elbow to knee crunch and for those reps if you are just starting out, eight to ten if you are just starting, intermediate 10 to 15, if you are advanced and you have experience in doing active exercises, 20 to 25.
