4 steps To fab abs

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Just scrolling through Lily’s In­sta­gram is enough to make us want to hit the gym HARD. Those legs, those arms, those abs. We’re ba­si­cally a hearts-in-eyes emoji come to life. Lily, 26, cred­its her fig­ure to car­dio work­outs and a bal­anced diet of flat-belly foods, al­though a full English (baked beans, hash browns, no black pud­ding FYI) is a favourite at hotspot Re­gency Cafe in Pim­lico, Lon­don.

1 Shape Up With Weights

‘You only need to do this three times a week,’ ex­plains Lily, who in­cor­po­rates var­i­ous moves, in­clud­ing kettlebell swings, kettlebell squats, split leg squats and as­sisted pull-ups. ‘I do each move­ment for one minute, three move­ments in a set, and I do that three times. It gives def­i­ni­tion to your waist, shoul­ders, back – every­where!’

2 Shrink Your Sugar Belly

‘I eat break­fast ev­ery morn­ing. Usu­ally, it’s half a sweet potato and three scram­bled eggs in co­conut oil, or spinach and fried eggs with ba­con. Even if I’m not work­ing out, I still eat a huge break­fast, but to keep a trim mid­dle you have to watch what you’re eat­ing,’ Lily says. ‘I’m no saint, though – I eat Mcdon­ald’s and Burger King, but you do pay for it.’

3 Keep Ped­alling

Lily’s a fan of Lon­don spin stu­dio An­other Space. ‘It’s only 45 min­utes but there’s no rest­ing and it’s great car­dio. It re­leases the en­dor­phins.’

4 Sup­ple­ments

‘Gabriela Pea­cock does these amaz­ing sup­ple­ments from Sel­fridges. I love Cleanse Me and Boost Me – great for be­fore the gym. They’re for the woman who drinks wine and eats pizza, but also has all the in­ten­tions of go­ing to the gym and feel­ing her best.’

Lily’s Mantra: ‘You’re never go­ing to re­gret go­ing to the gym’
