This how to get a flat belly – abs, obliques and lower back workout is excellent at doing just that. It’s great at toning and defining stomach muscles. By contracting your abs in as hard as you can, you’ll make this workout more effective. Also this makes for a great additional routine after completing a HIIT workout.
However as you most likely know, you can’t do core exercises all day long and expect to get a six pack or even a flat belly, by doing only that. That is because you cannot spot reduce fat. You’ll have to reduce overall body fat with mixture of different types of training styles, such as HIIT, strength training, cardio etc. Since this abs workout is only 12 minutes long, it makes it easier to add it on after another workout. Workouts like this go by so fast, and even if you don’t do it right after another workout, you can always do it later in the day while watching TV. And remember 12 minutes is better than zero minutes, so don’t stress if it’s the only workout you can do certain times.
I’ve created this workout in a way to make sure that we work on all the core area. Front, back and sides of your core. This way you’ll have a nice balanced core so you’re not only strong in the front but also in the back and and in the obliques.
