1. First week – Diet. For the first week don’t even worry about exercising, just focus on your diet by cutting down drastically on carbohydrates. Sugars should be the first thing to be eliminated. Next focus on eliminating your “heavy carbs”, such as pastas and breads. Ideally you want most of your carbs to come from vegetables.
You will notice a HUGE difference by cutting out these carbohydrates in only a week or two. This is a quick way to noticeably lean up the stomach.
- Pick an exercise which works the LOWER abs (such as leg lifts)
Upper Ab Work (Crunches for example). These are simple and effective for working the UPPER abs.
- Combos. This is any exercise which incorporates both LOWER and UPPER abdominal work in one motion. Crunching upwards while performing leg raises is an example of a combo exercise.
