Four steps to Insta-worthy abs
Yes, she’s famous for her sculpted abs, but there’s much more to Alice Liveing than just a rocking body (although, you know, it’s pretty inspiring). ‘Fitness is not about whether you fit a certain body stereotype or a number on the scales,’ she says. ‘It’s how you feel.’ Her new book Everyday Fitness* is Liveing’s bid to share the sense of freedom and happiness she gained from taking control of her fitness journey – in an efficient way. ‘Workouts don’t have to be hours long to be effective,’ she says. ‘It’s quality over quantity. Intensity is key.’ Inspired? Then have a go at her four killer ab moves – together they form your new ultimate 15-minute core conditioner. They’re intense, but no pain, no gain and all that. FYI Choose a weight at which, by the final two reps, you’ll be fatiguing. Rest for 1 minute between exercises. Don’t forget to warm up with a little dynamic stretching.
