Let’s be real. The number one body part EVERY woman is overly critical about herself is her belly. We truly believe that the key here is to stop comparing ourselves to 6’+ models with straight body figures. Embrace your body type and learn to love it and build confidence in it. This fitness routine will do just that. You might not walk out looking like you have David Beckham abs, but you will definitely feel like it, and that’s just the key. We love that this abdominal routine targets the belly as well as your LOWER BELLY! (Every girls worst nightmare…) The best part is you can literally do it ANYWHERE and ANYTIME. As always, NO excuses!
