Everyone wants to have a flat, sexy tummy. The secret to great abs is a combination of a daily cardio workout and a good diet.  It will take dedication, time and patience to get a six pack. By strengthening the abdominal core muscles and losing body fat, you can achieve the most toned and muscular abs, but it will not show if there is a layer of fat over them. So how do you do it? Running is a good start, because it burns lots of fat. However,  running won’t do the job alone. You also have to eliminate those extra calories from your diet that are turned into belly fat.  If you run 50 miles a week, then eat donuts and french fries all day long, it will take longer to see results, if any. Along with running, you need to condition the ab muscles with core strength exercises.

Check out these moves that will help flatten that tummy with proper diet and cardio training.
