Can a treadmill help you get rid of all that belly fat? Well, you might think of it as an impossible proposition but the truth is that it can definitely help you get a flat belly.
We are back with yet another interval training workout for you! This time, we guarantee that you’ll have washboard abs in just a month.
So, are you ready for the interval abs training that we have designed just for you? This move is perfect for those who are hell-bent on developing abs in a disciplined manner.
Let’s get to it!
First, we would like to give you a heads up: this exercise is not for beginners. People who have hit their intermediate and advanced levels can totally go for it. But, don’t be disheartened, beginners! After a dedicated 15 to 20 days of training, you can also indulge in this tummy tucking exercise.
Before you begin this exercise, don’t forget to warm-up. This way, you’ll avoid feeling any pain in your abs or legs. Try forward bending (20 times), hamstring pull (3-4 times with both the legs), skipping (200), and jumping jacks (50).
This interval training is divided into three parts:
1. Abs crunch – You need to kick start your interval training by doing 25 half crunches.
2. Leg raise – After that, you go straight into 25 full leg raises.
3. 2 minutes run – You have to run for 2 minutes on a treadmill at a speed of 10km/hour.
This is one circuit. Take a 30-second break and repeat it again. You need to do at least 10 such circuits if you want those washboard abs.
Tip: If you are not going to the gym or don’t have access to a treadmill, you can do on-the-spot running for 2 minutes.
How does interval training help you burn fat?
This is a high-intensity interval training with limited breaks between sessions. Due to this, your heart rate always stays up and you sweat a lot. Another thing is that by switching between exercises, you don’t let your body acclimatize. This is another reason you shed a lot of weight.
This type of training mixes muscle workout with cardio. Once you are done with your muscle routine and switch to cardio, the contracted muscles work even harder to burn fat in that particular region. Hence, you’ll lose weight and get closer to a flat tummy each day you do this.
So, ladies, it’s time to work towards that flat belly!
