Follow this 8-week workout plan for a slim and toned tummy
It is true that when the goal is to dry the belly, you need a task force to get there – the right exercises, balanced diet and willpower to properly follow a set routine. But that does not mean spending a lot of time doing dozens of sit-ups.
I drew up a series of three abdominals exercises, totally focused for localized fat. The abdomen is set quickly. Excited? You only need 15 minutes and a little corner at home or at the gym, and keep consistent in your daily workout, not forgetting to always allow a day of rest for the muscles to recover.
I suggest to do it three times a week, every other day. Complete all sets of an exercise and then go to the next and, if your a beginner, you can rest 20 seconds between one set and another. If you are used to training, you can do these without resting in-between.
First of all, we warm-up the core abdominal appropriately. For this, do 5-10 minutes of low intensity cardio with some exercises that help us to activate your abs without exhaustion, such as short sets of squats and push-ups. Once you have warmed up, you are ready to get going with this abdominal routine in 10 minutes!
1 – Leg Raises (20 reps)
2 – Bicycle Crunches (30 reps)
3 – 60 Second Plank
Tips to get a flat stomach!
Some attitudes combined with the workout can help you set off the “fanny pack effect” and gain a negative belly!
- Fill your refrigerator with lean protein. Research shows that a rich menu nutrient helps burn abdominal fat.
- In the evenings, take it easy. After all, during this period, the body goes into resting phase and you burn fewer calories.
- No snacking while having a drink. Reason being that your body will mobilize to burn the calories of alcohol, and the food will turn into fat reserves.
- Be aware of labels, especially the levels of trans and saturated fat and sodium. If consumed in excess, it can cause bloating.
