Your 50s+: Work the Right Ab Muscles

While cardio workouts will help zap postmenopause belly fat, it’s also crucial to target those hard-to-hit deep, lower-ab muscles—where traditional crunches won’t reach, says Donald Hensrud, MD, medical editor in chief of "The Mayo Clinic Diet."

To tone deep-ab muscles, he says, do this several times a week: Pull your navel in toward your spine while on all fours; do 10 rounds of holding for 10 seconds then resting for 10 seconds. For lower abs, he likes this move several times a week: Do 10 to 20 reps each of pelvic tilts and pelvic lifts while lying on the floor.
