Workout Corner – 10-Minute Belly Blasting Workout

by pinksoda

Hollar Ladies! Since this blog is dedicated to all you my lovely ladies out there and since we also have a health corner (though not that often), I decided to include another nook that I think will interest all of us. While we want to be fabulous with our outfits and makeup, I’m sure none of you will refuse a fab and hot bud to match the fabulous look!

So anyway, adding to our health and wellness corner is the Workout Corner. Since it’s undeniable that women are very much concerned with their mid section, I collated a Belly Blasting Workout that won’t take so much of your time but will definitely deliver amazing results. Whether you are at the gym or just at home doing your workout, you can do these.

This is called High-intensity interval training (HIIT). This workout style focuses on short, powerful bursts of activity followed by a short rest period.

Jump Rope

Start the workout by jumping rope for 30 seconds to get your heart rate up. Repeat this quick cardio burst after every exercise in the circuit.

Engage your lowest part of your abdominal muscles and the internal obliques.

Lie faceup with your hands by your side, palms down. Lift your left leg off the ground (keeping it straight) as you engage your core and raise your upper body, reaching your right hand to the outside of your left leg. Lower all the way back to the floor and repeat on the other side, lifting your right leg off the ground and reaching your left hand to the outside of your right leg. Continue alternating legs for 30 seconds.

Jump Rope for 30 seconds


This circuit works the muscles in your core, including the back and pelvic muscles.

Come into full plank position with your hands below your shoulders and your feet hip-width apart. Keeping your hips level and your core braced, lift your right leg and draw your right knee in toward your left elbow. (The knee does not have to touch elbow). Return your right foot to plank position and repeat on the other side, lifting your left knee in toward your right elbow. Continue alternating legs for 30 seconds.

Jump rope for 30 seconds.


Okay, don’t freak out with Pilates, it is not as hard. This workout strengthens the core and inner thighs.

Lie faceup with your knees and hips bent 90 degrees, hands by your side. Lift your head, shoulders, and upper back off the ground, and begin to pulse your arms, taking long, deep breaths (inhale for 10 counts, exhale for 10 counts). Your core should be engaged the entire time so that everything but your arms stays completely still. Continue taking deep breaths until you get to 100 arms pulses.

Jump rope for 30 seconds.


This will target your lower abdomen. The slow movement helps to engage the core.

Lie faceup with knees and hips bent 90 degrees. Lightly place your hands behind your head and lift your shoulder blades off the mat. Extend your right leg straight, bringing your chest toward your bent left knee (imagine you are trying to bring the bottom of your right ribcage to meet your left hip). Come back to center and switch sides, extending your left leg straight, bringing your chest up to your bent right knee. Make sure to keep your elbows out wide. Inhale at the center and exhale as you twist your upper body toward your knee. Continue alternating legs for 30 seconds.

Jump rope for 30 seconds.


This strengthens and tones the entire core while engaging the gluteus medius (the side of your rear). It also slims the waist, creating an hourglass shape.

Lie on your left side with your knees straight, feet stacked. Prop your upper body up on your left elbow and forearm. Brace your core and raise your hips until your body forms a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders. Keeping your hips high, raise your top leg as high as you can, toe pointed forward (try to point it down to the ground). Keep leg straight and upper body completely still. Lower your top leg and repeat. Do 10 reps on each side.

Remember that it is also important that we incorporate this workout with health and wellness diet products and foods to make this effective.
