A SIMPLE COMPLEX
Reboot your six-pack with this simple six-move dumbbell complex
Use dumbbells to build your six-pack
‘The key to fat loss is building and preserving muscle, because muscle tissue contributes to a higher resting metabolism, meaning you’ll burn more fat at rest,’ says trainer Shivam Patel of Fitness First. ‘Complexes, where you grab a piece of kit and don’t let go until you’ve finished a circuit, are ideal because you stimulate multiple muscles, release fat-burning hormones and create an oxygen deficit which keeps you burning fat for hours.’ Add this to your workout as a fat-blasting finisher or do it as a quick 15-minute session using the guide opposite.
1// SIDE LUNGE
Take a big step to one side and, keeping your chest up, lower into a side lunge so the dumbbells are on either side of your leading leg. Drive back up to the start and continue into a lunge on the other side.
