Hi my lovelies!
These moves are suitable for beginners and I will be showing and explaining to you step by step to master the moves. If you are busy, then this is good as it takes less than 5 minutes.
1) How often should I do this workout?
Do 15-20 repetitions and 3-4sets for each exercise, 3-4 times weekly on alternate days. If you are a beginner, start slow and increase the reps and sets as you progress.
2) Should I only do this workout?
For best result, combine it with consistent total body workouts (3-4 times weekly) and have a healthy, clean, balanced diet (that’s a huge part to getting a flat belly). You can refer to my other workout videos for an effective total body workouts. If you are a beginner, try my “Beginner Fat Burning” workout video with this.
3) When will I start to see the difference (or get a flat belly)?
For this workout and any other workouts in general, you should feel and see the difference in 4-6 weeks. This varies individually depending on how much body fat you have to lose, the safe and sustainable weight loss ratio is 1-2lbs per week. Again, combine this workout with total body workouts to burn off the excess fat.
4) Can I do this workout more frequently for quicker results?
Doing this workout more frequently doesn’t equal quicker result, it’s a combination of total body workouts to burn the excess fat off and a good clean diet. Allowing your muscles to rest and recover is as important too – hence do it on alternate days.
5) I feel the strain on my lower back instead of abs and my lower back is arching. Am I doing it wrong?
If you are new to this workout, It’s comment to arch our back because our ab muscles are not as strong yet. Slow down the pace and focus on getting the right technique initially.
So only bring your legs down as low as you can without arching your back. It’s alright if it’s only half way through because it’s more important that we don’t feel the strain on our lower back, and focus on working the abs muscles. You can also support your lower back by placing your hand directly under your lower back. As your abs get stronger, you will find that you will be able to bring your legs down even more.
6) I want to get a flat belly in 1 week or 2 weeks. What can I do?
It’s important to set yourself a realistic goal. We do not put on weight / belly fat overnight, hence it will take time for us to lose the weight too. The sooner you stop looking for shortcuts, instead trust yourself and your hard work, the sooner you will see results. Start by cleaning up your food; so no junks, fried food, soda drink and reduce the amount you eat. If you consume less than your body burns, that’s when you lose weight. And of course combine it with total body workouts 5-6 days a week for quick and best result.
Practice makes prefect. Fitness is for life. Let’s just not get obsessed over having a flat belly but to look at fitness as a way of living. Exercising gives you a healthy body, clear and balance mind, makes you happy and energised. Remember to love your body before you can make any changes to it.
