The abdominal fat is the hardest to be removed. To get this area in shape you need to be consistent in your workout routines and also watch your diet. Moreover, it is important to choose exercises that are effective and not just waste your time and energy.
If you want to get on your way to a healthier lifestyle in just a few minutes a day, try this quick workout from NYC-based certified fitness trainer Chris Sams, modeled by Instagram star Yovanna Ventura. For each exercise, do as complete as many reps as you can in 30-60 seconds, switching to the opposite side at the halfway point. Do all the exercises for the best results.
- THREAD THE NEEDLE
Get your body into plank position with your shoulders stacked over your wrists and your body in a straight line between the top of your head and your heels. Keep your hips aligned and extend your right knee to your right elbow. Next, extend the right leg across your body and sweep it under your left leg. Bring the right knee back to the right elbow, and this will count as one rep.
- FOREARM PLANK SWIMMERS
Perform a forearm plank with your shoulders stacked over your elbows and palms pressed lightly against the ground. Put your right arm out straight in front of you, open it to the side, and get back into the starting position. Repeat on the opposite side, and alternate sides as much as you can.
- LEG CROSSOVERS
Try to engage the abdominal muscles as much as you can during this exercise. Do this exercise for 60 seconds.
- SIDE PLANK WITH TWIST
Start this exercise standing with your feet shoulder-width apart. Then do a regular squat and finish it jumping up in the air. When you land, lower your body back into a squat position. Repeat it ten times.
- RUSSIAN TWISTS
Sit down on the floor, lif your legs and back as much as you can. With your arms spread forward, turn to one side of the body and then to the next. Repeat this exercise for 10 times.
