Are your abs toned up? Follow our advice...
In this newsletter we want to have another look at a part of the body which is particularly important for both men and women – the abs. Summertime is when even more of us would like to find out how to reduce our waistline and flatten our tummy before we carry out the long-awaited swimming costume test.
There are a number of ways of achieving this and our advice is to combine some aerobic activity like running, walking, exercise biking with some targeted exercises like those we recommend every month in this newsletter.
But remember that consistency is a highly important factor and that although these exercises may seem really easy, they can help you achieve really great results if you stick at it.
