The Beginner’s Guide to Beach Body Abs

Do you want a flat, beach body stomach and toned, sexy abs?

If you’re like most people, then the answer is ‘Yes!’. But getting the beach body abs that you deserve is hard – and the challenge is oftentimes too hard for a lot of people. Many of these folks work out for one week, or even a month, and then end up quitting long before they reach their goal.

But it doesn’t have to be so hard…

Beach Body Abs

Yes, these exercises are going to make you sweat. Yes, you’re actually going to be exercising (there is no such thing as a “get abs quick pill”).

But, these 3 beach body exercises will be fun and relatively non-strenuous – and you’re encouraged to start slow.

Exercise One – Walking

It’s a myth that all exercises aimed at tighter stomachs must include abdominal movements.

If you don’t burn off that layer of fat, you won’t get to see what’s underneath, right?

Walking is one of the easiest ways to start burning of that belly of yours.

Take a long walk in the evening. Aim for a half-hour to forty-five minutes. It would be great if you could fit a walk in every single day (walks improve your mood too), but, for most people, that is just not possible. Start out by taking a walk three evenings a week and you’ll be sure to notice a difference in no time at all.

Exercise Two – Squats

It’s kind of weird to focus on the legs when you want to see improvement in your stomach, right?

Well, walking has been proven to burn off calories but squats burn them off even faster! This exercise burns of calories while you’re doing it and boosts your metabolism so you’re burning calories long after you’re finished.


  • Start with your feet shoulder width apart to do a squat.
  • Lower your body towards the ground by bending your knees.
  • When your knees reach a ninety-degree angle, straighten them out, and lift your body back up.

There, you’ve done one squat!

Do three sets of ten squats three times a week for the best results. That’s only ninety squats per week, but they will sure make a huge difference.

Exercise Three – Crunches

Oh shoot, crunches.

You know that they’re not fun, but you also know that they work – so go ahead and do them.

Crunches specifically target the stomach muscles that you so desperately want to work on. Buck up and do three sets of ten crunches three times a week. Once you get a rhythm going they really aren’t all that hard.

Remember that these aren’t your high school sit-ups. Don’t raise your body all the way up to your knees – just getting your upper back of the ground is fine. This will make them much easier and more enjoyable. Plus, it won’t put as much stress on your back.

See, getting started on your beach body abs, belly-off fat-busting workout routine is easy. You can even take the extra effort to buy and wear a toning abs belt while you’re sitting around watching TV or reading – for a little extra push.

You only have to commit to three short days of workouts (really they shouldn’t be more than 20 minutes each) and three long walks per week.

If you can do that, then you should be seeing massive results in no time.
