How to Get a Flat Tummy in Just 5 Mins! – Strong Abs!

Hi my lovelies, please READ this box for more info in regards to some questions you might have. How I get a flat belly effectively with these simple workouts in under 5 minutes. These moves are suitable for beginners and I will be showing and explaining to you step by step to master the moves. If you are busy, then this is good as it takes less than 5 minutes.

1) How often should I do this workout?
Do 15-20 repetitions and 3-4sets for each exercise, 3-4 times weekly on alternate days. If you are a beginner, start slow and increase the reps and sets as you progress.

2) Should I only do this workout?
For best result, combine it with consistent total body workouts (3-4 times weekly) and have a healthy, clean, balanced diet (that's a huge part to getting a flat belly). You can refer to my other workout videos for an effective total body workouts. If you are a beginner, try my "Beginner Fat Burning" workout video with this. =)

3) When will I start to see the difference (or get a flat belly)?
For this workout and any other workouts in general, you should feel and see the difference in 4-6 weeks. This varies individually depending on how much body fat you have to lose, the safe and sustainable weight loss ratio is 1-2lbs per week. Again, combine this workout with total body workouts to burn off the excess fat.

4) Can I do this workout more frequently for quicker results?
Doing this workout more frequently doesn't equal quicker result, it's a combination of total body workouts to burn the excess fat off and a good clean diet. Allowing your muscles to rest and recover is as important too – hence do it on alternate days.

5) I feel the strain on my lower back instead of abs and my lower back is arching. Am I doing it wrong?
If you are new to this workout, It's comment to arch our back because our ab muscles are not as strong yet. Slow down the pace and focus on getting the right technique initially.
So only bring your legs down as low as you can without arching your back. It's alright if it's only half way through because it's more important that we don't feel the strain on our lower back, and focus on working the abs muscles. You can also support your lower back by placing your hand directly under your lower back. As your abs get stronger, you will find that you will be able to bring your legs down even more.

6) I want to get a flat belly in 1 week or 2 weeks. What can I do?
It's important to set yourself a realistic goal. We do not put on weight / belly fat overnight, hence it will take time for us to lose the weight too. The sooner you stop looking for shortcuts, instead trust yourself and your hard work, the sooner you will see results. Start by cleaning up your food; so no junks, fried food, soda drink and reduce the amount you eat. If you consume less than your body burns, that's when you lose weight. And of course combine it with total body workouts 5-6 days a week for quick and best result.

    I am 11 and I have been doing this everyday for the past week. Oh my gosh, theres huge results!! If your stomach hurt, thats good. All the fat is burning! Work Hard! Believe in yourself 🙂

    – 9/24/2021
    Hi guys, I was only 11 year olds when I posted this and well now I’m 16. I just wanted to say that this workout might not be for you and thats okay. I also wanted to say that if you are around 11 years old you should not be feeling the need to do these workouts. Your body is still growing! Don’t do this unless you are extremely unhealthy if that makes sense 🙂 It makes me a little sad in the replies when I see little girls trying to get a flat tummy. As long as you are healthy, you are beautiful!!!

    • Catradora on March 6, 2022 at 9:03 pm

      thank u i, 11 and all my friends are very thin (other than one friend which is about the same size as me) but i’m not skinny but not fat. im definitely gaining weight and i can tell and i feel so bad about it bc i’ve heard all my “friends” talking about how i’m fat and making jokes in front of me so i always feel bad so i just want to prove them wrong some how but idk anyways thanks again

    • lily on April 26, 2022 at 2:52 am

      I am 11 but I really want a flat stomach and I am kinda healthy but I need to workout

    • Material_Gurll on June 5, 2022 at 5:44 pm

      I’m ten and people at my schoool bully me for being fat, we’re at half term rn and I, hoping to become a bit slimmer

    • OvLuvsMARVEL on October 13, 2022 at 4:15 am

    • ally 💜 on December 5, 2022 at 3:30 pm

  9. Scarlette Davis on July 3, 2018 at 8:42 pm

  11. JustSoRandom on July 7, 2019 at 7:01 pm

    I’ve been doing this for 5-6 days and i am seeing results 😀 thanks Joanna for your awesome vids 🙂

  12. ᄏAnnaL on September 6, 2019 at 7:06 am

    I tried this awhile back and it’s the only short one that really gives u great results overtime. I definetly noticed tone and more of a flat even belly. I can’t remember how much I did I’ll say a good 3 times a week and a few weeks in 👌. Now I came back to get the same results ❤️

    • Trashxy 1 on May 20, 2020 at 11:53 pm

      Hey quick question but if eat a lot will the fat come back or what type of food did you eat like where you on a diet?

    • Csepella Kids on August 8, 2020 at 10:00 pm

      @Trashxy 1 you can eat whatever you want just eat slower so your brain can think about how much you eat, and eat less food. Anyways there are no diets.

  13. Sharon Russell on November 1, 2019 at 7:15 am

    I love all your exercises, even though they almost kill me, but I do have a question about Ab separation. I have had three babies and after 3 years with my last baby it’s been really hard to get my stomach muscles to rejoin. What exercises are safe to help reduce and get them closer or what can I do to avoid making them worse. 😁👍🏻i miss having a six pack!

  14. sashakimi31 on March 6, 2020 at 3:04 am

    THIS WORKS! Try it with the 30 day squat challenge too. If you are anything like me, (I haven’t done an exercise routine in so long, ) your body will hurt doing this the first time or after a couple days

  15. Lexi Miller on April 23, 2020 at 2:22 pm

    Omg! Okay so I have been doing this for 2 days and I’ve been doing it with a 30 minute fat burning exercise after, and I looked at stomach in the mirror and it was so much flatter!! I definitely recommend!

    • fantastic aarushi on December 2, 2021 at 12:22 pm

    • The brown squad on January 14, 2022 at 12:07 am

    • Tiana on January 31, 2022 at 5:42 am
