Tip 1. Lift your rib cage

Tone Abs and Butt Tip 1 Lift Your Rib Cage to Tone Your Abs

Tip 1 is for your Abs

as you lift your rib cage up, your ab muscles engage.

This is true whether you are;

  • sitting,
  • standing,
  • or even walking.

While you are doing your everyday activities, simply focus on the bottom of your rib cage and lift upward about an inch.

No need to over-exaggerate. A little lift and you will feel your ab muscle become engaged.

A nice domino effect: Your mid/upper back gets in the action.

While you sit or move around with your rib cage lifted– move your head left and right again.

Do you feel how your head and neck have released a bit? Isn’t that so cool!?!

This is why, during the chair routines Titled Posture Seated Routines on the Video Topics page, I emphasize sitting tall, tall, tall.

Tip 3. Alternate resting one foot on a sturdy object that is a few inches high

Tone Abs and Butt Release your back.

Tip 3

Alternating the resting of one foot on a sturdy object that is a few inches high releases your back.

By placing one foot up a bit, you release your lower back. So if you are standing doing dishes, standing at a desk or workbench…

  • Rest one foot on something sturdy that is a few inches high.

No need to have it higher than a few inches. When I stand at the kitchen counter cutting or washing vegetables, I simply open the cupboard door and place a foot on the ledge.

At my standing desk, I have a silver planter pot (empty, of course) turned over, and I place my foot on that.

Give it a try. Do you feel how lifting your one foot and resting it just a few inches off the floor alleviates tension in your lower back?
