HardCORE Exercises Better Than Sit-Ups!
Most people think that you have to hours of sit-ups plus cardio while starving yourself of food to earn a defined midsection and fit back into your favorite style of pants. BUT I AM HERE TO TELL YOU IT'S NOT TRUE!
In reality, there are far superior exercises and approaches than sit-ups and crash diets that actually get better results in toning up the muscles of the core body while stripping away the fat without putting a huge drain on our time!
Check out the workout breakdown below!
WHY PICK ON SITUPS AND DIETS?!
The exercises I demonstrate here actually involve your whole core body and actually use large enough muscle groups to drive fat loss with the shortest amount of time invested (especially those DB Deadlifts!).

Now back to sit-ups and diets... To be fair, sit-ups are marginal in working out one layer of the abdominal muscles (rectus abdominus), and place A MASSIVE amount of stress on the hip flexors which in turn places stress on the lower back (they're connected!). Weight training and healthy strategic nutritional choices are superior in burning body fat compared to calorie deprivation and cardio alone (this actually destroys muscles!). The exercises I demonstrate here actually involve your whole core body and actually use large enough muscle groups to drive fat loss along with strengthening and defining the muscle groups with the shortest amount of time invested (especially those DB Deadlifts!). Put these into action today and watch your core shine through!
Repeat 3 circuit sets. Go through each workout from #1-5 with rests in between each one of 20 seconds or less until you complete all 5.
✅ 1. Down-dog Knee to Elbow (8- 10 Eachside)
✅ 2. Cross Crunches (12 on each side)
✅ 3. Plank (30 sec)
✅ 4. Curl-ups (30 sec)
✅ 5. Dumbbell Deadlifts ( 10 reps at moderate weight load... flat back is a must... stop at shins... not to the floor)
REST for 2 min. in between your sets! Start slow and work up to completing the number of reps/time before progressing to heavier weight or more time!
Now GET TO IT and enjoy the ride~
