To fit in well with your busy schedule and fast-paced lifestyle, a good workout plan has to check a few boxes, especially regarding the difficulty of the exercises and how time consuming they are. With this idea in mind, we recommend a workout plan that will get your core in shape without challenging your lifestyle.

What you can expect from this workout

- it is fast

- you can do it at home

- no equipment needed

- contains only very familiar moves

- targets your full core

- no need to twist yourself into a pretzel to do it

The muscle groups that you will be working

- the six pack

- the ones that give you the flat stomach look

- the ones that give you a slimmer waist line

Three tips that you should follow, to maximize the efficiency of this workout

1. Burn that belly fat

Even if you work your abs to high heaven, if you have a nice, cozy fat layer that covers them, there is no point. To get rid of that fat, you need to stick to a good diet at the same time you’re doing the workout.

2. Additional workouts

What can help, especially if you want to burn that belly fat faster, is a fat-burning workout done in addition to this workout.

3. Track progress

This is important to help you keep your motivation up. You can regularly take pictures, measure your waistline or check your body fat percentage.

To check your body fat percentage, you can either use a bathroom scale with a body fat percentage measuring function, or you can use a body fat caliper measurement tool, or even a Skulpt Chisel. The last two methods, although more precise than the first, are a bit more complex or more expensive. The Skulpt Chisel is the most precise way to keep track of your body fat percentage, but it is also the most expensive.
