Really!RELATED: RECOMMENDED PLANS FOR YOU

Fab flat stomach workout routine
Repeat this routine up to 4 times or until 20 minutes is complete. it is designed to make you rest. Stop when you need to and then simply pick up where you left off. If you are feeling the burn, sweating heavily and breathing hard you are doing it right. If that is not the case and you are finding it all rather comfortable, then aim to use heavier dumbbells:
1) 250m on the rowing machine at high intensity
2) 12 reps Plank DB row and reverse fly
Left side – In plank position, take the DB in your left hand. With your feet wide for support (the narrower the feet the harder it will be), draw the DB towards your hip squeezing the shoulder blade at the top of the movement. Pause at the top, lower slowly and then perform a reverse fly out to the side, pause and lower (1 rep).
3) 12 reps Plank DB row and reverse fly
Right side – as above but swap to right hand.
4) 12 Dumbbell burpees
Hold two DB’s to your sides. Place down in push up position and jump or step back and immediately jump or step back in jump at the top
5) 12 bench reverse curls
Lie on a weight bench, grab the top of the bench with your arms to use as an anchor. Then by using your lower abs, raise and curl the hips and lower body of the bench being careful not to use momentum to swing. Pause at the top and with control, lower back to starting position.
These are tried, tested and proven exercises that really will deliver the results you are after.
