But if you are wondering how to get them yourself, here are a few exercises that will help you lose your belly fat and get flat abs. You can be sure of the results as these are recommended by Hrithik Roshan’s personal trainer Kris Gethin in his book ‘The Bodybuilding.com: Guide to Your Best Body’.
Lie on the floor. Place your hands on both sides of your head to support its weight and bend your knees with your feet on the floor. This is your starting position. Keeping your feet firmly planted on the floor at all times during the exercise, lift your shoulders and upper back up and away from the floor with your face pointing toward the ceiling. Although the range of motion is limited, exhale as you come up as far as you can, hold for a second, then inhale as you return to the starting position.
Trainer Tip: You can increase the challenge of this exercise by adding a weight.
Lying leg raises
Lie on a floor, place your hands on both sides of your head, and bend your knees with your feet planted firmly on the floor. This is your starting position. Exhale as you lift your feet off the floor and tuck your knees toward your chest, extending the bottoms of your feet toward the ceiling while focusing on pulling your hips from the floor. Inhale as you return to the starting position without allowing your feet to touch the ground completely when they are lowered.
Standing with your feet shoulder width apart, your arms out to your sides and your elbows bent.
Keeping your feet, head, and hips stationary, quickly twist your upper body from side to side so that your oblique muscles feel the contraction. Move from side to side only as far as your waist will allow you to go. Breathe continuously and contract your abdominal muscles throughout the exercise.
