I was JUST going to ask if anyone has tried the ACE bandage, belly band, girtle trick. I've read that it really helps everything morph back into shape, but I was wondering if anyone did it.

    i never thought of trying a girdle. i've never had a six pack, but that would be awesome!i'm still wearing my belly band though.
    This may be a stupid question but what's a belly band & what do you use it for??

      oh, it's just a piece of stretchy material you wear over you pre-pregnancy pants while pregnant. it's so you can still wear pants that don't quite button up anymore. sort of transition between your regular clothes and maternity clothes.

        I vote for Pilates, could be join a class / dvd. I started from using the DVD for 20 mins. each time. It worked for me.

            My trainer had me work my core....you lay on your back with your legs bent and your arms to the side of your body. Life up your pelvis without taking your shoulders off the ground.....hold for 15 seconds then rest for 10, repeat a couple of times. It really helps to strenghten your core.

            I was always told that crunches and sit ups didn't really work so well?

            Oh another one I use to do....lay down on your back and put your hands under your booty. Have your legs straight out then lift them up..repeat a couple of times.

                My sister and I did a marine boot camp one time (I know we are crazy) and they taught us all these stomach exercises to get toned and get a six pack and what not.

                Throw downs: You lie down on the floor and place your hands over your head and hold on to something stable like a chair (that won't move). Slowly lift your legs off the ground (keep your legs straight) until they are perpendicular. Then throw your legs down toward the ground (but don't let your legs touch the ground). Try to get your legs as close to the ground as possible without touching.

                The trick to this is to throw your legs down hard and fast but then not let your legs touch the ground. Trust me it hurts like hell. To work your obliques (the side muscles) throw your legs to the right and then to the left. It really works your abs out like crazy.


                I hope this made sense.

                  In dance school we used to call these "Chinese torture". LOL.
