Good thing some of our local celebs have stepped up to the plate.
Here are six different celebrity-approved workout routines to try out for toned abs. Of course, don’t forget to balance it all out with cardio exercises and a healthy diet.
Ab workouts, as seen on celebs
1. Kathryn Bernardo
At the onset of the first ECQ last year, Kathryn Bernardo shared her quarantine fitness routine, with the guidance of seasoned experts. She spends three sessions doing three different sets of workouts, so you can choose which one best suits your fitness goal. Day 1 involves slow resistance training, which requires varying forms of planks, lunges, and burpees, and works best with a Megaformer. Of course, if you don’t have the machine at home, then best skip to Days 2 and 3 for good-old fashioned mat exercises.
2. Julia Barretto
At the request of fans, Julia Barretto finally revealed her secret to killer abs in a YouTube video. Below, she demonstrates the specific exercises she does to train her core, with one set each. However, the actress reiterates doing at least three sets is ideal if you really want a toned midsection. Her routine includes rotational crunches, lying toe touches, heel taps, and planks, among others.
3. Erich Gonzales
You can always join Erich Gonzales for a full body fitness routine at home, but if you’re keen on only tightening your core as of now, skip to her last three exercises. She starts off with a one-minute plank, followed by 15 Russian sit ups and 15 leg raises. As per Erich, planking isn’t just for the abs. “Marami siyang benefits. It’s good for your balance, body posture, [and] it can help boost your metabolism.”
