30-Minute Alternating Cardio + Core Tabata Workout w/ 3-Minute Core Finish
This Move-For-Joy session is designed specifically to target and help burn abdominal fat. Slightly lower intensity tabata style intervals help your body get into the fat burning cardio zone and alternating between cardio and core helps target your midsection. Get some fun music going, switch any cardio interval for a dance party and have some fun moving your body and blasting that belly fat. :)

Move For Joy Suggestions
Remember, you can switch out any cardio/HIIT interval for a dance party--your body can burn up to 300 calories/hour dancing--so if burpees aren't your thing, bust a move.
Make this Move-For-Joy session your own by speeding up or slowing down your pace to the beat of the music. Varying your speed of abs or lunges or whatever move makes it more fun and the variety keeps it interesting.
Do your own favorite move. If something I'm doing in the video doesn't work for your body, do something else. As long as you are moving you are doing your body good!
