Walking can help you lower your blood pressure and reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes and other conditions. With just a few modifications to your walking routine, you can even flatten your belly.

Step 1

Keep your back straight and your shoulders back. Good posture is extremely important in order to exercise the right muscles. Your abdominal workout should not put strain on your back or neck.

Step 3
