Amazing ABS Core Exercises for a Flat Stomach

Beach season is coming soon and reducing the belly fat you have
should be your number one priority. This four-week workout routine will
be tough and exhausting, however, the results will be rewarding.
Sculpting your abs into a six-pack is not going to be easy, but once you
reach the flat stomach, you will feel much better. 


 

So how does this routine work? Here’s how:

Toning exercises should be done ahead with the indicated number of
repetitions and sets three days per week. Make sure you’re alternating
your days for the toning exercises. Make sure you’re doing the exercises
correctly and using the right amount of weights required. You should be
reaching progress each week. When you reach your fourth week, the abs
routine will be the hardest so do toning exercises just twice in the
week.

As for Olson’s Tabata-inspired cardio workout, you should do it three
times a week, also alternating. Start exercising with moderately hard
cardio with a steady-state. The cardio can be any exercise of your
choice. After the 10 minute cardio, do a four-minute round of Tabata
drills. Do the cardio and Tabata combination three times, resulting in a
42-minute workout. When you reach week four of the routine, do the
Tabata exercises just twice that week.
