Unfortunately, this also means that the stomach becomes the part of the body that everyone wants to flatten. While it is impossible to drop all your stomach weight overnight, it doesn’t mean you can’t work the abs underneath along the journey. Here are a few exercises that target your abs…
The plank is a core associated exercise which means that you have to engage your abs throughout. In addition to this, the exercise also works a whole range of other muscles such as your glutes, biceps and quads. Start by holding the exercise for 20-30 seconds and work your way up to 2 minutes as your core builds stamina.
This exercise is quite difficult for beginners and can be challenging for people who are new to exercise. Simply lay on your back, engage your core and lift your legs into the air and draw them towards your ribs. Your hips should lift of the ground as you do this. Complete 10 reps, rest for 30 seconds and then repeat for another set. If you find it difficult with your legs straight, try bending your legs until your abs and back become stronger.
