Hi there

Don't try to spot-reduce - it doesn't work. You will need to do a comprehensive exercise programme, where you exercise all parts of your body. Try either "Shape up for Summer" (home-based) or "War on Wobbles" (gym-based) - for ideas on an effective programme. In a nutshell - do your abdominal exercises, but do all the opthers too. By the way, push-ups work your shoulders and chest more than your tummy.

Good luck!
