Vanishing Muffin Top Workout

Ab work is the number one request I get in my classes. But remember, there is no such thing as spot reduction, so if you want the washboard abs your diet needs to reflect this desire and you also need to add cardio and weights to your routine. I’ve had washboard abs for months at a time throughout the years but not consistently…I’m being honest. Sure, I have incredibly toned abs & I’m strong but as soon as I let up on the eating and letting life take over, they disappear underneath some fat. I don’t have any genetic predisposition to a 6-pack so it’s related to my desire, my eating and exercise habits that I choose at that time.

Here is a part of the Vanishing Muffin Top Workout from Get the Skinny on Skinny Jeans to reduce the size of your muffin top. If you DO the exercises and change your diet accordingly, you can make a difference.

Remember these tips to help you reach your goal:

  • Technique trumps quantity
  • Go for intensity for maximum results
  • Pace yourself – it’s better to spread this out over the next 4 weeks instead of the next 4 days
  • Lose the all or nothing attitude. Learn how to do a little often instead of a lot a little
  • Do exercises that you LOVE to do- if you dread the moves/exercise you will not make time for them

Let the Vanishing Begin:

Skipping – 2-5 minutes


Squats without weights (add weights 2nd and 3rd set) – 30-50 reps

Lunge walks without weights (add weights 2nd and 3rd set) – 2 minutes
