This 3-week Flat Stomach challenge gets you active with HIIT and cardio while working your abs and full body. This program is suitable for all fitness levels as there are no jumping and low-impact variations throughout, and no equipment is required.
Yes, you can skip some videos if you can’t keep up. You can also follow the low impact versions, they’re here for a reason and are effective. The key is to go at your own pace, and you will see progress overtime. If you think that you can’t commit to 28 days, it’s okay. You can switch to a 2 weeks program like the 2 Weeks Shred. Or you can start this challenge and after 2 weeks, take a break. Then, when you feel like working out again, start where you left off.
The shorter shred programs are more intense as they have full body workouts every day or every other day. This program has some days without any full body workout. The shredding programs are here to help you lose weight. This one can also help you with weight loss, but it also helps you strengthen other areas of your body.
You can’t target fat loss, if you want to lose belly fat you need to work your whole body. Targeting specific areas can help you with body strength and can help you build muscles. Don’t worry, you won’t bulk up that easily! Also, with some compound exercises, you’re working your arms as well as your core. In order to create free programs, I optimise the title of my videos and programs according to SEO best practices to help it reach target audiences.
You can still do this challenge if you want to gain weight. If you want to gain weight, you need to be in a caloric surplus. But don’t forget that amount of calories someone burns daily will not be the same as someone else! You can also try other other resistance based programs such as Get Fit Challenge or Get Peachy Challenge for gaining muscle mass. Diet plays an important role in gaining or losing weight.
When you’re doing abs exercises, you need to engage your core. If you’re not, you’re probably using other parts of your body such as your back or your neck, and you risk to injure yourself.

If you’re feeling a bit sore, it’s totally normal. Don’t forget to stretch before and after working out, especially if you’ve just started your fitness journey. But being sore isn’t an indicator of whether you had a good workout session or not. If it doesn’t go away, just take a few days of rest in order for your muscles to recover!

This is entirely up to you - if you are feeling strong enough then go for it. You can also just stick to low impact moves if you want. However, if your body needs rest, then please rest. Your body will naturally be weaker during that time so don’t be discouraged, you got this. After your extra rest day, just continue where you left off.
