Everyone desires it, whether most persons want to admit it or not!

Having a flat stomach comes with a lot of perks, from super confidence to not having to struggle with zipping up those jeans.

But guess what?

If you put what you're about to learn in this guide to good use and stay consistent, you will see results.

Now this isn't a flat belly challenge but you can turn it into one.

You'll be given 3 targeted abdominal workouts and a cardio session to do.

As mentioned in a previous post, doing targeted ab exercises alone won't do the trick, you have to combine it with cardio.

So for every future guide that we will do regarding belly fat, love handles or anything about fat reduction, it will involve cardio.

First, we are going to cover the flat belly workouts, then go into explaining the cardio session that you will do after.

Optional: For these workouts, they will use either kettlebell or a 8-10 pound dumbbell. This is highly recommended as adding weight will increase the resistance hence, increasing your calorie burn.

So don't be afraid to add weights to your training because extra resistance will produce faster results.

Don't worry, it's beginners friendly.😉

Let's get right into the workouts!

Here we go!🏁

1. Oblique Pumps

This specific exercise will target your obliques. So persons who want to get rid of waist fat, this is a powerful move.

How to do it

  • Hold for 1 second then slowly return to the starting position and repeat.
  • Do 2 sets of 20 reps for each side.
2. Weighted crunch

Crunches can be extremely powerful if you do them correctly. For example, in this case you will be adding a dumbbell which provides far more resistance during motion.

Making that one modification can make a huge difference in your workout results.

How to do it

3. Air Leg Extension

  • Straighten your legs in the air at a 30 degree angle to ground, while extending both hands with the dumbbell.
