We all want amazing abs, but earning a six-pack is hardly effortless. To motivate, we called upon Victoria’s Secret Angel, Martha Hunt to give us the low down on her results-driven routine (a favorite of hers is dance-based, interval training at Body By Simone) for a chiseled midsection. “I focus a lot on planks, there are a lot of variations that I think give me great definition.” While most us aren’t planning a strut in our skivvies like the model, we are interested in a super toned tummy for the holidays. Here, three effective moves anyone can do on their own. Team these with a couple booty-burning exercises and you’ll be ripped in no time.
Work The Middle
Begin in a plank position with shoulders down and abs squeezing tight. Start by lowering your right knee to the floor, return to plank, lower the left, return to plank, lower both knees, return to plank. Single, single, double is one rep. Repeat this ten times for three sets.
Target abs, legs and booty at once by beginning in a plank position with shoulders down. With abs squeezing tight, bring your right knee into your chest and squeeze, then kick it straight behind you squeezing your glutes with toes pointed also engaging your hamstring. Repeat this motion ten times on your right leg, then switch to your left leg for a total of three sets on each leg.
To target obliques, begin in a plank position with forearms on the ground and shoulders down. With abs squeezing tight, twist to your right side tapping your hip to the floor, return to center, then twist to the left and tap your hip to floor and return to center again. This is one rep. Repeat this ten times for a total of three sets.
