The Flat Belly Workout You Can Do On Your Lunch Break

Fitness: Workouts

By: // December 21, 2016


Got a lunch break? Then let’s be honest: you have time to work your core. If you can sneak away to a conference room or make a little space in your office, then you can do this 10-minute workout and still have time for lunch—no excuses allowed! All you’ll need is a little floor space; there’s no need to head to the gym, change clothes, and sneak away for a second shower, taking up extra time in your busy day. This quick flat belly workout is ideal to do over your lunch break or whenever you have 10 minutes to spare.

This workout will teach your body to engage the most important abdominal muscle you own—your transverse abdominus. Through a series of planks and other core body moves you’ll feel the muscle getting tighter right away and, over time, you will train it to stay pulled in which keeps your abs looking flatter and your back more stabilized and strong. Win win!

Why Bodyweight Workouts Work For Abs

The fact is that the best core exercises are done using bodyweight and no equipment. Stabilization moves like planks, side planks and core body lifts are some of the most effective ways to train your core muscles, including your transverse abdominus and obliques. Even better, you don’t need equipment for bodyweight workouts and because you’re not making a big range of motion with this workout in particular, you won’t get super sweaty. Instead, by doing a lot of squeezing and pulling in of the muscles, you are training your abs to do what you want them to do—pull your tummy in!
