FAQ - How can I get a flat stomach and a tight bum?

Well firstly, I would recommend any general cardio activities. Relatively low intensity cardio is the best way to burn fat stores in your body. Therefore cardio will help you lose any fat on you stomach and bum (as well as the rest of your body). To tone the bum and stomach, area specific exercises to strengthen the aforementioned muscles are needed.

To get a flat stomach, I would recommend stomach crunches as the simplest way of isolating your abs. For 7 great abs exercises check out 7 Ab Exercises …all the crunches you could ever need.
For the bum, cycling is brilliant, especially if you can clip your feet into the pedals as this allows you to pull up on the pedals as well (working your hamstrings as well as glutes), this kills two birds with one stone as it also provides you with the aforementioned cardio exercise. Other bum exercises e.g. get down on your hands and knees then lift one leg off the ground and straighten your leg behind you lifting it up and into a horizontal position, repeat this exercise perhaps 20 reps and you should feel it working your bum, then repeat on the other side.
This'll keep you going for the time being, a load more info can be found at Fat Burning Time
Best of luck
