Cross training: burst interval high and low aerobics: squats, squat thrusts ( burpees ), planks, standing arm to opposing knee crunshes. Plain old situps are not enough. Add diet ( most important) portion control, fiber, 8-10 glasses of water.day. Consult a trainer and a nutitionist and certainly get a medical checkup.
