With all the flat stomach workout information you see online and in magazines itâ€™s hard to figure out whatâ€™s the best and most effective way to create a flat stomach workout that will work and get you results.Â So Iâ€™m going to take the time right now to help you with some basic guidelines to follow to help you get the flat stomach youâ€™ve always wanted.
Stay away from your standard steady state cardio regimen, such as walking or jogging at one speed, as it will not get you optimal fat loss results to get a flat stomach. The most effective flat stomach cardio is Interval Training.
This means you are alternating a certain time period of high intensity work (or sprinting) with a slow intensity work (like a slow jog or walk). This type of interval training will help you burn fat faster and up to 48 hours after your workout.
The best part about this type of workout â€“ you can use it on any cardio machine in the gym â€“ the bike, Treadmill, Elliptical, even the Stair Climber.
Here is an example of what your interval training could look like:
Week 1-3: 15 Seconds Sprint, 45 Seconds Walk/Jog (repeat for 5 minutes)
Week 4-6: 30 Second Sprint, 30 Seconds Walk/Jog (repeat for 10 minutes)
Week 7-10: 1 minute Spring, 1 minute Walk/Jog (repeat for 15-20 minutes)
In order to get flat abs, your workout needs to incorporate weights â€“ not just cardio and crunches.Â A full body weight workout is the most effective and efficient type of workout for a flat stomach. This type of weight workout will keep your heart rate elevated, therefore, burning more fat throughout your workout.
Also, when you lift weights you build muscle. The more muscle you have, the more fat you burn, which will get you the flat stomach that you want.
Full body workouts allow you to train every muscle group, three times a week (with a day of rest between each workout).Â This type of training promotes muscle growth as well as fast fat burning, due to the increase in fat burning enzymes in your body. The more fat you burn the sooner you have the flat stomach youâ€™ve always wanted.

The hardest part of any flat stomach workout is the diet. When you think of working out, you donâ€™t really think about what you eat â€“ you are most concerned with what you have to do at the gym. However, a flat stomach diet is a key element in getting the stomach of your dreams.
If youâ€™re post workout attitude about eating sounds like this, â€œI just worked out so I can eat whatever I wantâ€ â€“ will only make it harder for you to get a flat stomach.Â A flat stomach diet must consist of protein, healthy fats, and â€˜goodâ€™ carbohydrates.Â Making sure you have the right mixture of these foods in your meals is important to getting a flat stomach.
