Science or no science, it is known that stubborn stomach fat, water retention, acidity, gas and bloating, all are related and play truant in not giving you the flat tummy you crave for. This means, it is high time you rethink on 5 issues that are obstructing you from reaching your goal.
Before I proceed, you must know the two factors (other than body fat) that most people who want flat tummy usually overlook:
- There is a layer of water retention in the stomach that makes your stomach look fatter than it is actually.
- Internal stomach fat, coupled with bloating, pushes the stomach out making your waist look thicker and podgy.

Given below is one of the best “flat stomach exercises schedules” that is very effective to get flat tummy. It will burn fat and build your ab muscles at the same time. You will do this schedule daily, at gym or at home, if you want great result. Well, you can take Sundays off, though I would not personally recommend it, at least in the initial 4 weeks.
The schedule is in two parts—Part I has three flat tummy exercises that you will do 1 minute per exercise. This means you will do the 1st exercise for a minute, rest for 15 seconds; on to 2nd exercise for a minute, rest for 15 seconds; on to 3rd exercise, and here, you will rest for 30 seconds. REPEAT Part I again.
- 1st Exercise: V-Sit with Russian Twist
- 2nd Exercise: Burpee with Knee to Elbow Jump
- 3rd Exercise: Push Up Plank
After you complete Part I two times, start with Part II.
Part II has three flat tummy exercises that you will do 1 minute per exercise. This means you will do the 1st exercise for a minute, rest for 15 seconds; on to 2nd exercise for a minute, rest for 15 seconds; on to 3rd exercise, and here, you will rest for 30 seconds. REPEAT Part II again.

- 2nd Exercise: Leg Lift with Knee Hug
- 3rd Exercise: Double High Knees with Inner Heel Touch [Do 1 set (right + left) high knees; immediate after, do high knees and touch your inner heels. Continue in this fashion)
These flat stomach exercises would not be complete without pre workout stretches and post workout stretches. After completing Part I two times and Part II two times, if you still have some energy left, you can do 300 to 500 Jump Rope. Then, complete this flat stomach exercises schedule with post workout stretches.
