    Everyone should try this H.I.I.T (High Intensity Interval Training) too! It can be the answer to your dream abs. H.I.I.T brings you a lot of benefits. I gave these workout a try too and look at me now, I burned a lot of calories. I used these workouts together with the workout routines I found from Exercise Aholics.

    HIIT is definitely the best to reveal those abs. Nice exercise choices! Have never heard of Figure 4 exercise, but will have to try it during my next workout 🙂

      These exercises will target the muscles in the entire belly to increase strength and to enable your body to better burn fat from all over your body. Once the fat is eliminated, your abs will appear more defined. It is impossible to spot-target fat, only muscle. Fat is eliminated through exercise, regardless of the type and target-location, and clean eating.
