If child birth or simply too may crisps have made your abs less easy to find than the Scarlet Pimpernel, then it’s probably time to think about exercising. The trouble is that this is an area that can really hurt to sort out.
If sit-ups make you sweat even before you’ve put your bottom on the floor, then how about an exercise programme that promises you the abdominal muscles of your dreams without you having to do a single painful crunch? Sounds great, doesn’t it? Don’t be fooled into thinking this is the easy option, however, as dancer and instructor Shaun T undoubtedly wants to make your body burn.
The best thing about the Hip Hop Abs Fitness Programme, and probably one of the main reasons why it has seen such a surge in popularity of late, is that you can feel close to death whilst still having fun.
The six-packed Shaun T and his bevy of beautiful bodies are pleasingly easy on the eye, and the hip hop tunes are to die for — not literally, of course. There’s even the option to choose extra-loud music, which, if nothing else, will help mask the fact that you end up gasping for breath.
Shaun’s fundamental ‘tilt, tuck and tighten’ regime is a bit tricky to master at first, especially when combined with some pretty high-octane moves, but once you get it you can really feel the programme working on the wobbles. Best of all, once you get back into that slinky dress or skin-tight tee, you’ll also have some killer moves to show off on the dance floor.
