Flat stomach exercises for women
Get an abs-solutely fantastic stomach in time for summer
If a flat, toned tummy is number one on your summer wish list, just doing sit-ups isn't going to give you the taut tum you're after. In order to get the most out of your workout, you need to mix-up your routine - stomach moves alone won’t trim your waistline, no matter how many sit ups you're doing! The key to a super-slim tum involves a combination of a healthy diet and a good exercise regime. These three variations of sit-ups target all the different muscles in your mid-section, helping to melt excess fat and reveal a svelte waistline and sculpted abs. Try them with 30 seconds rest between each set to get the most out of the routine.
