Hi the best one i did was laying flat on your back and, keeping legs straight and together, lift them towards the ceiling and back down without completely touching the floor then raise back up again and continue doing that(sorry i dont know what the exercise is called) if its hard to do then place your hands under your bum for support until you have strength to do it without your hands 😊 hope this helps

I hope you understand all my explaining lol

Do you know if you have diastasis recti (separation of the stomach muscles)? If you do then traditional an exercises will only make it worse and your stomach will get bigger. To check for diastasis recti lay flat on your back with your knees bent and do a slow crunch up. Hold it. Take you hand and place right above your belly button. See if there is a gap between the muscles. If so see how many fingers width (measuring from side to side). I have this. There are tons of low impact inner core exercises that will repair it. But I would highly suggest checking out YouTube.

Leg lifts. I do this along with crunches and planks.

At you talking just excess skin or some extra belly fat? Sometime with excess skin after being stretched out from pregnancy, there isn't much you can do short of surgery to excise it.

For belly fat, diet is really the key. Of course, exercising ab muscles does help significantly as well...but I think that what one eats plays the most significant role. Plank variations are awesome. I also really like laying on the floor with my legs straight up in the air (perpendicular to the floor) and then very slightly, lifting your hips off the ground. It's a very small movement, only an inch or so at the most, but it does wonders for your lower abs, which can be hard to isolate with other exercises.

Planks! I hate them but they work great. And there's many diff variations to do and progress with.

When can we start to exercise? I am almost 4 weeks and still cannot lift over 4lbs., shower, still sleeping inclined. I am going to a pool party on 8/27 and need to do a little tummy tightening before.

Hi Rabbit, you have many awesome suggestions here from AirmanWife, cleavage89, & tabbi13.
I highly recommend 10 minutes of corework/pilates everyday at least. I just got back to Mari Winsor 20 minute pilates workout a few times/week. I love it. When performing those movements, I truly hold in my core(powerhouse in pilates terms) This is an added workout for me, as I do cardio & kettlebell during the week also. But adding back the pilates has not only helped my core, but also my flexibility, strength, & overall conditioning. Heck, adding back pilates has even helped my sex! I noticed last week I could get into different postions much easier than a few weeks ago. Lol. Why not! hahahah. So I am liking my new flexibility! Lol.

Another note, many fitness gurus believe that at least 5 minutes of ab work should be done everyday.It is important to know you may not be able to do everything the exact way it should at first, but you must stick with it, to see improvement. Pilates "fits the bill", for me to achieve better stomach, flexibility, & better sex also.

It's belly fat I eat healthy I use to weigh 115 pounds but since I got my iud I gain about 25 pounds. I would really love to lose the extra weight.

I used to work as a therapist in a medically supervised Weight Loss Program at a large academic hospital. The most important thing I learned working there was that loosing weight is about 80% what goes in your mouth and 20% exercise. Exercise is great but if you don't change the way you eat you're spinning your wheels. I would focus on that first and add some cardio and other exercise in also.

Along with proper diet & exercise, I used a devise called the "fasciablaster" (sounds silly I know) and its helped tighten my stomach back to almost pre-kids size. I have only used it for about two months but it is crazy how well it works. It was only about $100 with tax and shipping. Best money ever! I have had three kids via c-section. www.fasciablaster.com

May I add Moringa to this list? I've just found some useful piece of information here https://wikihomenutrition.com/moringa-health-benefits/. It said that moringa is very rich in nutrition. Therefore it provides many good health benefits such as reducing cholesterol, increasing breast milk, treating anemia. Spend time reading the article. Nice to share with you guys.
