It’s the New Year which means almost everyone has a New Year’s resolution along the lines of getting into shape, eating healthy, and losing weight. According to statisticbrain.com, only 8 percent of people achieve their resolution. Well New You will help you get there! Here are top five moves for killer abs from the trainers at Burn 60 Studios.

  1. Plank

Start off in a plank position on your hands. Hold this plank for 30 seconds.

  1. Stirring the pot

Hold a light weight out in front of you.

Imagine stirring a giant pot with a giant spoon and move the weight in a clockwise direction for 30 seconds

Reverse direction for another 30 seconds

  1. Mountain climbers

Follow with 20 mountain climbers ensuring you engage the abs by adding a little crunch to the movement.

Alternate between these for 3 minutes, or as long as you can go

  1. Side Plank

Start off in a side plank and hold for 30 seconds – switch sides and hold for 30 seconds

  1. Bridging

Lay on your back with knees bent and feet flat on the ground. Raise your hips toward the ceiling focusing on squeezing your glutes and drawing your belly button in.
