You’ve heard the saying, “abs are made in the kitchen,” but that’s no excuse to skip your ab workout! When it comes to the midsection, I get so many questions about the lower belly in particular, because that’s where we tend to store excess fat.
For women especially, we tend to notice belly fat around the waist. A large part of this has to do with hormones because they play a big role in every aspect of fat… including fat storage, gut bacteria, and cravings. Through the years, your metabolism can become a bit broken. And if you’ve been on an extremely restrictive diet, your body will have a tendency to preserve every fat cell as it goes into survival mode.
Getting rid of belly fat is about more than just vanity. It correlates with a number of diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers. And, belly fat is a marker that your health is going downhill. You have the choice at any age to reverse the process!
By moving and eating in a way that treats your body well, your metabolism will start working efficiently and the reward is that you’ll start shedding excess fat.
For a strong lower belly, try this 5-part routine. Perform each move for 30 seconds, with 10 seconds of rest between. Complete the entire circuit 1 to 3 times.

Outsmart Belly Fat and Change The Way You Age
Why is FLAT ABS OVER 40 so powerful? Because it incorporates the three major elements to building a strong core, having flat abs, and looking and feeling younger… and it’s all right here!
Here’s How FLAT ABS OVER 40 Works…
STEP 1 – STRONG ABS WITH THE 10-MINUTE SOLUTION
ABS-olutely amazing core exercises for flat abs…and designed for every fitness level! Flat Abs Over 40 includes the right mix of ab exercises that work together to tone the entire area from every angle so you can have a strong, sleek, midsection.
The 10-min ab-centric workouts focus on the muscles in your “powerhouse,” which is everything that lives below your ribs to your glutes, including all of your ab and lower back muscles. Having a strong midsection makes a stable foundation for every other activity. Yes, that means it makes squats and burpees easier.
STEP 2 – BURN BELLY FAT
No matter how tight your core is, you still need to burn the fat that lies above (subcutaneous) and below (visceral) your abdominal muscles. Visceral fat doesn’t just give you a big belly…it can lead to chronic illnesses, some of them potentially deadly. And viseral fat is harder to get rid of.
You’ll tackle visceral fat with High Intensity Interval Training… the best belly-fat targeting method. People who interval train have far more fat loss compared with endurance trainers. These super-workouts will help you reach your goals faster.
STEP 3 – ABS ARE MADE IN THE KITCHEN
Flat Abs Over 40 includes a day-by-day 8-week meal plan that takes the guesswork out of eating. Nothing could be easier, because the plan shows you exactly what to eat for each meal of the day. Plus, recipes that are mouthwatering, but not too-taxing on your time or budget. With 100+ no-hassle recipes, there are plenty of great options that you’ll be sure to love.
