3 Steps To A Strong and Sexy Core

If there’s one thing that we women seem to be obsessed with, it’s our core, and quite right too because your core is one of the most important parts of a beautifully functioning fabulous body. However, lots of women have come through our doors confused about what they want from their core so I thought I’d try to throw some light on what having a ‘strong’ core really means, how it’s different to getting ‘toned abs’ and exactly how you can do both of those things.

Watch the video to discover the 3 steps that you need to take to lose fat around the middle and have a core of steel.

The Best Lower Abs Exercises for Women

Rebelles, if you struggle with the dreaded lower belly pooch then fear not because we’re pumped to share with you a simple 4 move workout that you can do anywhere, without equipment that will target your lower abs PLUS Elle’s instant must-have cheat move that will dramatically improve your waistline without exercise. (Yes really!) Ready?

Before we start it’s time for quick squizz at the science:

Do Bodyweight Exercises Burn Fat?

Fitness loves a bit of fashionable chop ’n’ change. One season it’s all about aerobics, remember that 80’s craze? Then we were all doing Zumba and right now HIIT is HAWT.   (That’s high intensity interval training - short sharp bursts of intense effort, that mean you don’t have to workout as long.)

But the question is, while bodyweight HIIT workouts are convenient and fast, are they too good to be true? Will you really burn fat like a #gboss if you’re squatting in your bedroom without weights instead of sweating in the squat rack?

The Lower Body Fat Blast Solution

Yes, you know what I’m talking about ladies. You go on a fat-loss routine, everything is going really great, you’re losing weight, and it’s all coming off your upper body (and your boobs, of course)  but it isn’t coming off your butt and thighs. GRRRRR So why is this?

It’s all down to estrogen and the way your body burns fat at a cellular level. Obviously, women have higher levels of estrogen than men, so we tend to carry our fat deposits in different places.
