Top Tips

1. Your stomach muscles lie underneath a layer of fat so even if you do hundreds of sit-ups and have a 6 pack you won’t see it and your stomach will still stick out unless burn off the layer of fat which is over the muscle

2. Try some short fat burning activities such as hiit workouts (high intensity interval training) to help you tap into these fat stores

3. Try increasing strength by doing weights throughout your whole body to boost your metabolism and overall energy expenditure

4. Try exercising in the morning before eating so your body is forced to use fat stores for energy for your workout instead of getting the energy from what you have just eaten

5. Reduce processed foods and simple carbohydrates such as bread and pasta which will keep your energy topped up and prevent your body from tapping into its stored fat reserves

6. Some simple stomach exercises to target different areas and strengthen your core 2-3 times a week will be plenty. Such as sit ups, leg lifts and planks. Aim to increase intensity and duration as the exercises start to feel easier

Weekly challenge!

And the above tips on eating and within a few weeks your stomach will be looking much flatter!
