Abs


Want to lose that belly flab? Choose two to three exercises a day and do at least thirty of them. It's important that you do not just focus on the abs, but also work your body by doing additional cardio and strength training.

Suggestions: 
Russian Twists
Crunches
Side Crunches
Reverse Crunches
Sit ups
Leg Raises
V Sits
Mountain Climbers
Knees to Elbows
Burpees
Plank and Side planks

Time yourself and see if you can beat your time the next time you try these.

When these become easy, add weights to your ab workouts. I do sit ups with at least five lbs some days.

Here are my abs from three different angles. My stomach is not perfect and I do not have a two-pack, but it is a lot flatter than it used to be. You cannot hide anything by wearing a bikini.  If you do these exercises, I guarantee you that you will get a stronger and flatter tummy.

    1. Hi Mindy,
      Thanks for viewing this post. I do abs almost everyday. I would recommend doing these ab workouts 5xs a week and mixing it up with other forms of exercises. You cannot do just ab workouts to get flat abs. It's a mix of healthy eating, cardio, strength training, full body workouts and abs.
      Best of luck,
      Jenny
