You can uncover your abs!
Revealing your true tiny waist and flat stomach. It’s absolutely possible and within your reach.
You don’t need any special equipment or some so-called “magic pills”.
In fact, there’s no pill that can help you lose body fat.
That’s a myth, designed to feed off people’s desire for a instant-fix. If that was the case most people would have a flat stomach while loading up on junk food daily.
The reality is that it takes consistent action and some discipline to achieve it as with anything in life.
The goal of this 11 minute small waist and flat stomach workout is to take you closer to that goal.
Plus, you’ll be getting a meal plan to help speed up the process.
The Small Waist & Flat Stomach Workout Overview
This workout is made up of five different exercises all having a specific job to do.
It’s a combination of targeted abdominal moves and HIIT/Cardio.
The high intensity interval (HIIT) exercises is to help boost overall calorie burn. While the other waist-sculpting moves help to shape and tone areas of your midsection.
For this routine keep your rest time between 30-40 seconds,
You want to maintain a level of high metabolic intensity. Try to push your body, it’s just 11 minutes and you want to get the most out of it.

Without further ado, let’s break down each exercises so you can do them correctly.
1. Squat to Crunch
You might be asking yourself what squat has to do with getting a flat stomach and tiny waist.
The answer is a lot!
Here’s the thing about squats, it’s one of the best total body exercises that boost your overall calorie burn.
When you perform a squat it engages every single muscle in your lower body.
Remember that your lower body has some of the largest muscles like the gluteus maximus and thigh muscles.
Working these muscles absolutely supercharger calorie burn.
In this case, it gets even better because we have added a crunch move to it to help target your midsection.
How to do it

- Thighs should be parallel to the ground and both hands in front of you.
- Now slowly raise your body into crunching position B with right elbow almost touching your left knee.
- Return to the starting position and do the other side.
- Repeat alternately doing the required amount of sets.
Note: While in position B tighten your abdominal for 1 second then inhale and exhale going down into position A.
2. Chair Bicycle Crunch
Even though you will be doing this exercise in a chair it won’t be that easy.
If you’re doing the move right.
