Get Flat and Firm With This 10-Minute Belly Fat Sizzler

Sometimes you only have a few minutes to bust out a workout, and this ab routine is seriously perfect to do in a flash at home. Here’s the best way to flatten your mommy belly with this routine:


  • Perform each move for 60 seconds and rest for 10 seconds in between each move.
  • Complete as many reps as you can in each 60-second interval, making sure to keep proper form. Do not sacrifice form in order to complete more reps.
  • Keep your core engaged (belly button into spine), and add weights or resistance to any move when you need a challenge.
  • Get ready to burn some serious belly fat!
