Bottom toner and Cross crunch are exercises that you do on the ground. They are easy to do, but the posture should be correct to have the wanted outcome. The best way is to tuck your stomach in when you perform the repetitions. That is the most effective technique to reach the deep muscles within the stomach.
With these two activities, you tone up your lower stomach and the sides of your stomach. With bottom toner, you are also working on your glutes. They are very effective, and you will see positive outcomes when you do them regularly.
These two exercises strengthen the energy field of the physical body. They work on your feeling of self-esteem and security. Because you work on your pelvis area and lower stomach, you will feel centered and more secure day by day. This is a crucial area because this is where our sexuality is located. Here we need an extra boost of care and focus. It is a susceptible section of the body.
