This lower ab workout will help you strengthen your core and tone up your abs without making you bulky!
But I always like to remind you guys that while ab exercises strengthen and build your ab muscles, they don’t spot reduce fat.
Losing fat on your abs comes from a combination of cardio, resistance training and most importantly, diet!
You can do this workout after your cardio if you want to :)
HOW TO COMPLETE THE CIRCUIT
- Complete each exercise for 30-40 seconds.
- Complete 2-3 rounds, and try to have as little rest as possible.
- I use a set of gliding discs for this workout. I LOVE using these for my ab workouts as they make some of the exercises so much more challenging :)

I should also mention my 3 Steps To Lean Legs Program which is designed to help you get lean and toned legs.
It includes FULL body workouts similar to these, cardio training and an 8-week meal. It has everything you need to get slim and lean.
So if you like this style of training that gives you a toned look without making you bulky, my program might be perfect for you :)
These are the gliding discs that I use, and I love them because you can use them on hard surfaces, and you can also take off the covers and use them on carpeted surfaces too.
They are quite cheap and light so are a great investment (and good if you travel a lot like me!).
But if you don’t want to buy them, you can use a small towel on hard surfaces, or paper plates on carpeted surfaces. :)
Hello! Could you explain the difference between resistance training and HIIT? Is HIIT just done at higher intensity?
Hi lovely, yes HIIT is high intensity exercise done interval style, so shorter bursts of energy with a short break. It usually really gets your heart rate up. Resistance training just means either body weight or weight training :) xx
