Few things are as sexy as a lean, sculpted midsection.
The first thing you should know about getting a great midsection is that you have to get rid of the fat covering the area.
Since there is no such thing as “spot reduction,” you need to eat well and do regular aerobic activity. Take the stairs, get off the subway a stop earlier, park your car a little further away to burn any fat that may get in the way of seeing your hard-earned stomach muscles.
