A few weeks ago I posted How to lose your mummy tummy – part 1, which was a 15 minute introductory workout, designed by Dan at Sound Mind and Body to target the mummy tummy. Now the moment you’ve all been waiting for (?!), without any further a do, I bring you…

Mummy Tummy Part 2!

As before, Dan has designed a 15 minute workout that will really get your middle fired up. There is a circuit of 4 exercises to do. You should repeat the circuit 4 – 6 times back to back with little rest in between. And, to make it that little bit easier to follow, here are 4 high quality videos!

1. Extended Heel Taps – 10 – 12 per leg

Very similar to the original heel taps, only this extension challenges your core more, so it’s a nice step up. Remember to focus on keeping your back pressed into the floor.

2. Plank with Rotation – 10 per side

3. Side Lunge Slide – 15 – 20 per side

You’ll need some very high tech equipment for this one…a muslin square.

4. Jumping Squats – 20

Dan says…

For a longer workout (45-60 minutes) start with a 5 minute warm up and then you can combine workout 1 with this workout. The circuits should be done 4 times around with little rest in between and a short break at the end. This keeps the heart rate high. You could also increase the number of times you do the circuits. 4, 5 or 6 times around is good as you improve. 
Following that if you have time left, do 10 minutes of hiit training at the end. It’s all about keeping the heart rate elevated to burn the calories whilst Toning and getting fitter. 


So there you have it! Be gone Mummy Tummy.

Thank you Dan. (I think!) I did this workout yesterday and I can confirm it’s a toughy! Let me know how you get on.
