  • "Muffin" removal

    I have been working to get rid of my "muffin" (the roll of fat above my belly button and below my breast. Please give the best exercises to whittle that away for good. I have gotten it down to nothing at the end of 60-day challenges and then it comes roaring back. Please help!

    Hi, I'm still a newbie, started mid January. It was Trisch's Activation Tips that helped me get rid of my big pregnant looking tummy. While I would not consider myself totally flat abs, and will still occasionally bloat, my muffin top (I called mine my cup holder) never came back.

    Here is a link:

      LOL, Mary, technically, that is not muffin top that is the mother's apron...

      Muffin top is below the belly button and that puff up with tight pants...

      Tuck and pull your lower abs and do Organ in Place for lower abs... Workout great for lower abs is Tempo Arms...

      Mother's apron is upper abs and the lats, do more Senior Fit and moves that elongate the rib to hip. Do Brian Body Floor.

      Were you under a lot of stress... stress and cortisol creates the "lifesaver" in the middle. I will seriously look into your stress level if you got rid of the abs from the last challenge.

      You only way to really get rid of the stress pudge is by destress and very consistent daily stepping...

        Thank you ayj67. Well, it is good to know I don't have a muffin. I will work on those suggestions to get rid of my "Mother's apron". Whatever it is, I hate it! And yes, major stress for the last couple of years. My own cancer and my husbands failing health has taken a real toll on me so I'm not sure how to get rid that stress except with prayer.

          I am sorry about the health issues causing you stress.

          The floor workouts really help my upper and lower abs.

            Hi, Mary!

            The best move ever for that area--and all the abs, really--is the Mitten Chop Box. Do you have Senior Fit? It's on there, and there is the Organs in Place part on Healthy Hormones. It's also on the digital First Step series.
