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.
