My #1 trick for keeping your abs tight
insanity hip hop abs keep core tight
4/19/13 3:31 PM
What's up, Team Beachbody! During my last video chat, I got a question I thought might help all of you out there who are hoping to get some six pack abs.

Whether you’re doing INSANITY, Hip Hop Abs, or some other program, it's not always easy to remember to focus on your abs. That’s why I wanted to share my little trick that helps you know whether you’re keeping your core tight. Watch the video below to find out what you need to do.

Keep the great questions coming for my next chat! You can check the Team Beachbody Chat schedule to see when I'll be back online for the next video chat.

- Shaun T

Good point there Shaun!

I try to tense my core on my walk to work every day. Walk faster to get the cardio and pull in those abs on my 3 mile walk each morning, I find it the best moments to do it - you're going from A to B and nothing else is in the way. Why not?

Looking forward to more tips, Shaun!

I watched the live chat and heard you say to laugh. Since then, I've been laughing throughout the work out or just smiling and can feel a difference in the tightness of my abs. Thanks for the awesome tip!!!!!!!

hmberry...i don't know if they fixed the subtitles or not, but here is what I got out of it...when you're working out you should laugh and that tightness you feel when you laugh is what you should do during a workout. It is hard to actually remember when you're working out so I think Shaun is saying to try it when sitting on your chair. Contract (laugh if you're having a hard time) and let go. I try to do it when I am watching tv so hopefully I'll remember to do it working out!

Umm that might work for Hip Hop Abs but what about INSANITY? No laughing there. I'm getting my butt kicked and I'm just entering week 4. Nothing to laugh about :-(

No wonder my stomach hurts when I laugh. The core is actually tightening when laughing. Well, I'm going to die laughing some more. Mwahahahahahahahahaha

Thanks for putting it in print. I could not get the video either. I can feel it when I laugh too. Years ago, i had "the flattest stomach in the world." LOL Today, 30 years and four kids later - now I really know the meaning of stomach. I'm working with HHA until i can lose enough weight to try out Insanity. Thank you ShaunT for all your help. I am on my way!
