Build the abs of your dreams and get rid of belly fat

Are you dreaming of 6-pack abs once we will be able to get out again?Well the most auspicious scenario is that this will happen in summer,so we will jump straight to light clothes and swimsuits.So if you are aiming to achieve your fitness goals,have a better physical condition or feel more confident with your body you need to make a few sacrifices.

Beside the workout routine you should establish in your life in order to achieve the desired outcome,a few modifications on your diet and lifestyle are required.Enrich your diet with high-protein foods(chicken,eggs,almonds,legumes,Greek yogurt),healthy fats(avocados,salmon,dark chocolate),reduce or even cut off sugar-sweetened drinks like soft drinks,juices with preservatives and alcohol,fill up your meals with high-fiber foods(quinoa,whole grains,chia seeds).A lot of hydration also helps,don’t forget to drink water and add green tea to your routine.

Let’s see now some of the workouts you can take to exercise your abdominal muscles and get rid of the belly fat.Cardio is always helpful when we are talking about fat burning,walking,running,biking and swimming are among the trainings you can follow while gyms are closed.But what I call the game changer and I swear by is jumping rope.Ten minutes per day at the beginning with breaks is going to lead you to faster results.

There is an abundance of workouts and exercises to try but I would love to share those I have tried and helped me so far.

I have mentioned before my friend Sophie Kinalopoulou ,an advanced and health specialist,an online coacher who also organizes nutrition plans.On her Instagram feed she shares workouts and exercises in order to achieve the ultimate goal.I had my favourite video of hers to share but lately Sophie released a new one and I love them both.Follow her or even better book online trainings with her.She is passionate with her job but also a kind and beautiful person.

Concerning my personal fitness routine I try to workout almost everyday . After a pause of months I begun exercising again back on March with 20 to 30 minutes 4 times a week but lately I workout at least 5 times per week 1hour +15minutes to 2 hours a day . I understand that may seems hard , but that used to be my normality few years ago when I had the physical condition and the body posture of my dreams . With Covid-19 many of us had to amend our workout routine , but we are in 2020 and everything is possible there are countless of free online programs and videos to watch , you can always take advantage of outdoors activity and the most important you can trust the specialists and have an online personal trainer who will focus and work with you upon your needs .I switch between running , cycling , ballet workout , yoga ,pilates , jumping rope ,dancing ,aerobic ,cardio and etc. As you have already known there are plenty of choices to pick out accordingly to your preferences . Slowly , slowly I regained my strength but to retain a good physical condition is an ongoing progress .
