Hey Gang! ¬†While it’s FREEZING outside, I can see the little light at the end of the tunnel that is Spring Break. ¬†Despite being 29 years old and not having a true Spring Break, I like to still prepare my bikini body – hehe. That said, ¬†I’ve been digging through my workout repository and have pulled my 3 fiercest, most effective AB workouts…

Now, the plan is to do 1 workout every other day for the next 6 days. ¬†So do 1 workout, rest/do cardio, do the other workout, rest/do cardio…and so on. ¬†Got it? ¬†The idea is to give your abs and core one day of rest in between workouts so your muscles can repair and gain strength. ¬†Overworking your abs without adequate rest prevents you from gaining the full benefits of the workout. ¬† Alright… let’s do this!

Melt the Muffin Top: Complete workout for your CORE

picstitch(23)

Alright y’all.¬† Summer time is quickly approaching.¬† While I’ve learned to love my “love handles” and opt for high-waist pants rather than low-rise ones, I still feel a need to address the much dreaded “muffin top.”¬† Now, we all come in different shapes and sizes and we should embrace our natural curves.¬† However, excess belly fat and fat storage around the hips is neither HEALTHY nor SEXY.¬† Belly fat, which is called visceral or intra-abdominal fat, is linked to high cholesterol, high insulin, high triglycerides, high blood pressure and other health problems. You can click here to read up on more health risks of excess belly fat.

Below is a workout I designed that will strengthen your core and lower back and also help provide some definition to you lower waist.¬† For best results, do this workout 3 times per week for 4 weeks along with 30-45 minutes of high intensity cardio intervals.¬† I’ve also included some pics of me doing the workout this morning to help guide you.¬† Try it out and let me know how it goes.¬† Enjoy!¬† Luv, Brit ūüôā
