    Sometimes it’s not easy to find the time to exercise and if it’s not a part of your day-to-day routine already then committing an hour or two to it, can be off-putting. So I’ve teamed up with my amazing trainer Harry Jameson to create a 5 minute workout to tone your tum and get you those washboard abs you’ve dreamed of!

    There are exercises for your obliques (AKA those sexy side abs we often see Gigi Hadid flaunting), your lower abs and your six pack and you don’t need any equipment which means you can do this ANYWHERE. So, let’s get to it…

    The Side Plank

    1. Place your forearm directly beneath your shoulder.
    2. Lift your hips up high.
    3. Stay strong for 30 seconds then change sides.

    For a more advanced option, lift your top leg and arm at the same time. Once you get stronger you can increase your time to 45 or 60 seconds on each side!
