    What is the best and tested way to flatten abs after giving birth? Sit ups are so difficult and can cause back injuries and pain.Thanks!

      If you start right after giving birth, a postpartum girdle can help a great deal

      This might sound strange, but breast feeding and running worked for me. (That said I was a runner before and partly during pregnancy).
      All the best to you.

    After baby #4, I did a lot of cycling, walking, running and jumping around in the trampoline with my kids.  I also worked my body with crunches and back strengthing exercises.  I monitored the type of foods I ate and the amount.  I also drank large quanitities of water, which helps remove any toxins left behind from the pregnancy.

    Good luck!
