    Not if the muscles are covered in a layer of fat. You have to lose the fat first by eating less.

    What PP said. They will work to tone and strengthen your muscles but you won't be able to see them if they are hidden under fat. The only way to lose that fat is through balanced diet and exercise (mainly cardio). You can't concentrate weight loss on certain areas by doing certain exercises.

    And nothing can remove the saggy mummy tummy skin that is a loose pouch except a tummy tuck.
