Stuck in the sit-up rut? Here are 13 belly-busting workouts you can do in 45 minutes or less to keep your quest for flat abs fun. 5 workouts under 45 minutes to target your abs.
FANTASTIC ABS WORKOUT
If you want to see your abs, the first thing you need to do is stop thinking that certain exercises target individual muscles. Your body is smarter than that. If it wasn’t, then every late-night TV abs device would do the trick. You see, the layer of fat on your belly has no connection to the muscle beneath your sexy stomach. The Fantastic Abs Workout is the ultimate fat-eliminating routine because you’ll activate more muscle, burn hundreds of calories, and work all of your core muscles with every exercise.
FAT-BURNING MMA ROUTINE
Muay Thai kickboxing is the premier martial art in Thailand and a major component of any MMA fighter’s game. With its combo of devastating punches, kicks, and elbow and knee strikes, it’s also great for getting abs. Just look at any Muay Thai fighter’s body if you doubt its benefits. The abs these guys develop, both aesthetic and functional, can’t be carved at your average health club. Try the Fat-Burning MMA Routine!
THE BELLY-MELTING WORKOUT
We get it: You want to see your lower abs. But what you might not realize is that your rectus abdominis muscle, or abdominal wall, actually covers your entire midsection and connects at your pelvis. Still, women are constantly searching for exercises that will help eliminate that dreaded lower-belly pooch. (We got your attention, right?) And now the search is over! Most of the effective exercises in The Belly-Melting Workout target multiple abdominal muscles, so you’ll maximize your belly-burn with every rep.
NO-CRUNCH ABS WORKOUT
Repeat after us: You don’t need to do crunches to see your abs. It might be hard to believe, but it is. The real secret to seeing your abs is selecting ab-crushing exercises that will burn a lot of calories and train your abs at the same time. The No-Crunch Abs Workout won’t look like your traditional abs workout but it will work better than all the other failures of the past.
THE 10-MINUTE MUFFIN TOP SOLUTION
Pretty much every woman wants tight, toned abs. We’ve known that for a long time. But what most women don’t know is that they already have them! They’re just hidden under a thin layer of fat. To reveal your defined midsection, you may need to change your definition of an “abs workout.” The 10-Minute Muffin Top Solution is about condensing what you’d normally do in an hour into 10 minutes. The result is an intense plan that actually melts fat.
