Hello everyone! & thanks in advance for your help I've been doing abs constantly for about six months now and I do see results but my waist doesn't seem to get smaller at all. So, it's almost like my stomach looks manly? Ugh I know!! What do you do to obtain a smaller waist?

I don't know what your eating habits are but once I started portion controlling my meals, along with eating healthy my waist slimmed down a lot! Keep doing your ab workouts with cardio and eating right and you'll get there :)

Targeted weight loss is widely accepted as a myth. You can't choose where to lose weight.

A calorie deficit combined with full body workouts that build muscle is your best bet.

Usually when a girl says her belly looks manly is because are is doing only regular crunching exercises. Try going some elbow plank dips, elbow plank twist dips, oblique crunches, candle sticks, Russian twists, and (my favorite) bicycle crunches. Those will target the transverse abs and the obliques to help give a more "feminine" appearance :)

And doing intense cardio for about 20-30 mins 2-3x a week certainly couldn't hurt :p
