Can't specifically: Get rid of abdominal fat by spot reducing. If you lose weight a portion of that weight loss will reduce abdominal fat. Additionally, core toning exercises will help you stand more erect & improve your appearance. To lose weight keep up your physical activity and insure that calories burned exceed calories consumed. Weight training can help build muscle which helps to increase your metabolic rate.

Aerobic activity will burn calories. Specific exercises will make muscles more taut. No matter what ads promise – you can't spot reduce without surgery.
