Flat stomach exercises for women
Tone your tum and put your core work in the fast lane with these ab-tastic moves
It may not be bikini season but it doesn’t mean you don’t need to work on your abs. After all, a flat, toned tummy looks great under a body-skimming party dress and can help you ooze confidence all night long.
If your core work involves doing a bazillion sit-ups at the end of your session, it’s time change up your abs routine. Although tummy exercises alone won’t trim that waistline, a combination of a healthy diet and a smart exercise regime will. Once you’ve cut the fat you’ll reveal svelte and sculpted abs thanks to these three sit-up variations.
These moves target all the different muscles in your mid-section. Try them with 30 seconds’ rest between each set to get that stomach working hard.
