Are you in a rush to sculpt those abs? What’s your plan to get there? Maybe you are planning to do ab exercises every day or are doing 1000 abs repetitions to ensure you get that flat belly in a short span. Sorry ladies, but if this is your plan then you are going to fail miserably because you are just going to strain your muscles and achieve nothing else. Instead of doing this, why don’t you try some exercises that you can do after completing each set of your core workout.

Yes, there are so many exercises that you can do in between your set that will accentuate the result of your core workout and burn more belly fat. So, what do you really have to do? Come, let’s reveal.

1. High knees

Whenever you run through any standing abs video you will find high knees to be there. You know why? That’s because it is one of the best cardio that works on your core simultaneously.

After every set of your abs exercise, you can do 100 high knees from each leg and then move on to the next exercise.

2. Virtual skips

If you want to take it slow then there is nothing better than skipping. Those of you who don’t have a skipping rope can totally do it virtually. Set the timer at one minute and as soon as you end that set, stand up and start skipping.

3. Skater

This one works amazingly well on your oblique muscles so if you are really troubled by those love handles then go for it. Fifty skaters on each side are enough.

4. Jumping jacks

After skipping, this is another exercise that is great for beginners to work on their core muscles. Just ensure to keep your core flexed and then do at least 50 jumping jacks in full swing.

5. Burpees

Do we really need to say anything about the baap of all exercises? All we want to say is that if you want that flat belly to show-up ASAP then after every set of abs exercises perform a minimum of 15 burpees and we will guarantee that within a week you will see your frame popping up.

6. Jump twist

This one is dedicated to your lower abdomen and oblique muscles. If you want to take it a notch higher then you can do hip twisters as well. How? Well, take a squat, stand-up, and jump with a twist. Now repeat the twist on the other side. If you are doing normal jumping twists then 50 on each side are enough. If you are doing hip twisters then 25 on each side are enough.

7. Squats

You must be thinking how leg exercises can help your ab muscles. That’s the beauty of this one friend that without making you realize, squats work on your abs as well. Basically, when you go down it flexes your core muscles (esp. lower abs) and when you lift then the core energizes the move which helps in burning fat. And that’s how squats work to bestow you with a flat belly as well. Twenty five squats after every set is enough.

 So ladies, are you on to welcome those hardcore abs?
