The key to losing the fat that presides over the ab muscles is the consistent combination of varying intensities of cardio, total body strength training, and a clean and healthy diet.
And that is, abs workouts – especially fast, focused and to the point ones like this one are important for strengthening the core.
So that you have the strength and body integrity to do these super-effective HIIT cardio and strength training workouts, not to mention simple daily living activities, without injury you need to add these abs and oblique’s workout video into your rotation of other Fitness Blender workouts will help you further tone your stomach also burn off a few extra calories.
So this video is less about demanding, super challenging moves, and more about building endurance throughout your core. Another very important aspect of avoiding injuries and strains that might otherwise sideline your exercise plans, so that why none of the abs exercises in this routine are particularly difficult. That is why we do them for a full 50 seconds.
Also, flexibility is a variable in this routine, so press into each range of motion as far as you comfortably can. But remember, never to the point of pain.
Adding this routine into your workout schedule 3-4 times a week will not only result in a more defined stomach, but it will increase your flexibility. No matter that many of these exercises have multiple different steps and require some coordination you don’t feel discouraged if it takes you a second to get the hang of a movement. Because mixing things up is part of the point here and it makes your body and your brain have to work harder.
Also, a lot of the exercises in this routine engage far more than just your core, which is a great thing and for many of these exercises, you will also feel your glutes, thighs, arms, chest, and shoulders.
There are ten different exercises, and each one engages the core (abs, obliques, lower back) in a different way and you will do each exercise for 50 seconds. You have just a quick ten-second rest/transition time in between each exercise.
So your core muscles never get a chance to fully relax and your abs and obliques workout is done quickly. That means there’s time for a little bit of Fitness Blender cardio or strength training to accompany this workout, both of which are essential to losing belly fat.
