The Fantastic Workout That Could Flatten Your Belly
If you’re constantly hiding your abs under a floaty top, it’s time to get rid of it for good. We’ve got a workout that will boost your fitness, reduce your weight and also improve your wellness and wellbeing along the way.
This combines fat-burning cardio and moves that target the full core of your body rather than individual ab muscles, meaning that you burn fat and tone up at the same time.
You should aim to do this workout three days a week, making sure that the days are non consecutive. Start by doing the most basic version of the moves and then gradually advance to the harder moves when you feel that you are ready. The best way to do things is to perform the exercises listed here as a circuit. Do one set of each move and then rest for 30 seconds before moving on to the next exercise, and rest for a minute between circuits.
This workout will fire up your metabolism and burn off fat, and intervals are the best way of intensifying your workout. You should also be sure to include a warmup and cooldown period.
Start with a basic plank, which is when you go to the top of a pushup position but with your arms slightly closer together. Your body should be raised up and in a straight line. Hold it for 60 seconds (or as long as you can manage at first).
Next, move on to a side plank. Lie on your right side and keep your legs straight. Prop yourself up on your right forearm so that your body becomes a diagonal line. Rest your left hand on your hip and then hold your abs tight for around 60 seconds or as long as you can manage.
