Sure you can still stay sexy even after you turn 40! It's not the end of the world, consider it as the beginning, as they always say, life begins at 40. Just like you, I've been complaining about my tummy pooch for as long as I can remember. How do you get rid of this and achieve a sexy stomach even when you're 40+? There's really no shortcut in getting this, forget about those magic creams too that claim that they can melt fat in an instant. Having a flat and a sexy stomach will require hardwork and patience, not to mention a clear and a consistent workout plan. Whether you want those six-pack abs or you just want a flat tummy, there's an exercise routine that's right for you.

The best exercises will help strengthen and sculpt your stomach however your abdominal muscles will not be too visible unless you burn off the layer of fat covering them. To do some floor crunches, you have to lie flat on your back with your knees bent while placing your feet on a resting bench (a chair will be fine too). Keep your neck and head relaxed with your hands at the sides of your head. Focus on putting some tension on your ab muscles while holding the contraction all throughout the movement. When you reach the top, try to contract your abdominal muscles intensely. Repeat the movements slowly but with a lot of control. If you want to define the muscles on the side then you can do oblique floor crunches. Again, as with all abdominal workout routines, you need to relax your head and your neck. After completing a full set of repetitions on your left, switch to the right side and follow the same instructions while maintaining tension.

Doing some crunches every single day won't be enough. You also need some cardio exercises to rev up your weight loss program and for you to be able to have a sexy tummy and leaner figure. The key in a good cardio workout is finding your target heart rate. You can find plenty of resources online on how to get your heart rate goal to burn some fats. Other than its fat burning properties, cardio exercises improve glucose metabolism, heart rate, blood pressure and cholesterol. There are a lot of cardio exercises to choose from but make sure you pick something that will be fun and enjoyable for you.
