I'm doing the cat vomit exercise for more than one year now (I do 10 reps of 16s everyday, my waistline goes from 78 cms to 72 cms when I do the stomach vacuum vertically).

I look for more 'permanent' results, my stomach looks very forward (while I only have 5% of BF), isn't there 'harder'/more advanced exercises to keep increasing my transverse abdominis' strength?

  • Inhale siringes... attach a tube to a siringe and move the siringe by sucking in the air through the tube. Or suck your stomach out with a real vacuum while trying to resist it

    You might want to add some conventional ab work, too (sit-ups, crunches, leg lifts, bicycle kicks). This cat vomit exercise is just 1 exercise. It can't do everything.
