Holiday body | How to lose weight in a month


Flat stomach
 

As well as sunblock, having a flat stomach is high on our holiday check list. Kara Daly recommends these exercises to tone your tummy, ready for its summer outings at the beach.

She says: "Sit-ups and the classic plank hold are always good exercises for the tum - but never place you hands under your neck or head to force your upper body into a sit-up movement. It's very damaging to the neck.

"When completing the plank make sure that you are in neutral spine at all times - don't push the bum into the air as this will make the exercise easier!"

So other than these exercises, what else can be effective?

Kara says: "Leg raises are also good - lying on your back and raising the legs off the ground (always pushing the lower back down into the floor to engage the core.)"

When you feel the burn you know you're shaping up - remember no pain no gain.
