Tummy Exercises Workout

This workout is a little bit different than my other workouts I offer because you get to pick the exercises.

Every day I want you to pick 5 different tummy exercises and do 3 sets of 20.

If you choose planks, I want you to do 3 sets of as long as possible.

Be sure to pick a variety of exercises to make things interesting and help you burn the tummy fat.

Workout Tips

  • Swap out your sodas for water. This will boost your metabolism and cut calories at the same time.
  • Make gradual changes in your diet. Eating a large sweet potato is much better for you than some french fries.
  • If you can’t do 20 reps per set, write down how many of what exercise you’ve done and strive to get better.

Having a nice midsection won’t come easy, but these tummy exercises should help you achieve your goal.

Remember, you can’t out exercise a poor diet!
