Abs for Summer in 7 minutes a day

 In New, Workouts

Do you have your abs for Summer ready to go?

Toning and strengthening your core is far more than just exercise, it is also a combination of:

  1. Drinking Water
  2. Eating the right size portions
  3. Cutting back on sugars (the bad ones)
  4. Eating more regularly throughout the day as opposed to one large meal

Once we have all of the above in check, let’s start with some of my top Abs for Summer exercises in just 7 minutes a day.
