Hi. I'm Mel Gregory with Tight Bod with a Pod doing exclusive mom workouts for ExerciseTV. And today, we're gonna be doing the muffin top minimizer. So once you've had your baby, this is often the trouble spot for moms and we're gonna give you a great exercise that will focus on it. You can do this with no weight or light weight. All you need is one. You're gonna put it about your head. Hand on your hip for stability. And you're gonna bring your elbow to meet your knee, standing nice and tall. I'll show you one more time and then extend back up. Let's go ahead and do six of these on each side. Ready? Put that arm above nice and long and pull it together. If you can't get your knee to hit your elbow, that's fine. You can really feel that oblique crunching. Last one. Good. We're gonna switch sides, extend it and let's go. You could feel that oblique contract, looking those muffin tops. Good. Last one. All right. Now that we've strengthened, we're gonna go ahead and stretch. So, you can put your weight down. You're gonna put your arms above your head and we're gonna stretch that oblique out and hold it and then other side. I'd like you to do about eight to 10 on each side in a circuit to focus on your core. Good. And make sure that you focus on the front of your core and the back as a whole. Work it out so those muffin tops will be gone. Thank you so much for joining me. I'm Mel with Tight Bod with a Pod for ExerciseTV. We'll see you next time for more must have mom workouts.
