Why does the six-pack get so much attention when a much bigger, deeper abdominal muscle called your transverse abdominus (TA or TvA) is really the key player in your core health and the size and strength of your waistline.
This 10-minute crunch-free, sit up-free workout is “Totally Transverse” focused, and you don’t need to lie down to do it; you can do the exercises while sitting or standing. It’s a kid friendly, mom-friendly, dad-friendly, grandma and grandpa-friendly, pregnant-friendly workout that will truly start to tone your tummy from the inside out! I dare you to do it every day for two weeks or at least 3-5 times per week, but measure your middle first, and then measure again at the end of two weeks. Your TvA is sometimes called your god-given girdle because it wraps around your whole body, and you’ll be amazed at the changes you see when you tell it, “Vacation’s over! Back to work!”
NOTE: At the start of the video, Bethany mentions that you’ll be sore, but if you aren’t sore, please remember that soreness isn’t the goal. Health and strength are the goals. Soreness is more related to nutrition and initial weakness. If you think that working your core is just for “looks” then think again! A weak core creates a myriad of other health issues like stress incontinence, lower back pain, bowel irregularities, and sexual disfunction.

“I have lost some [weight] but not a lot, but this really does seem to tighten my waist up and folks keep complimenting. The thing is, I was suffering some incontinence issues, and since I started really focusing on this the past few months, I no longer have any issues with it. Kegels did not help at all. AT ALL. But this did. So thank you! I can sneeze now without worrying and haven’t peed my pants in a long time!” -Fit2B in Oregon, Melinda
