building core muscles


Achieving your last-minute six-pack ambitions depends on strengthening your core and burning fat. This session uses quick movements and plenty of reps and holds to deliver the greatest impact in the minimum time. “It keeps the intensity up, burning calories and targeting the key areas,” says fitness model, former Love Islander and trainer Alex Beattie. Complete four rounds of the first circuit, resting two minutes between each set, then repeat with the two-move finisher. Go all out.
