Some good exercises here but the key to getting rid of belly fat comes from your diet. Abs are made in the kitchen, not in the gym. @Lucy - If your goal is to lose weight, I highly recommend the Venus Factor as it's designed specifically for women. Here's a direct link to the guide: www.TheVenusGuide.com

Good plan, but only abs workout is not good enough for a lean, fit, sexy, feminine body. A complete program must be followed with workouts, diet, healty foods etc. I found lately such a program from Flavia del Monte and I am following it.The program is called "Flavia Del Monte's Licious & Curvalicious Workout Systems". The results are amazing. To achieve the same positive results follow the link below: http://flaviafitness.info

To print slides 1x1, or all in 1 document, look at funny symbols about 1, 2 inches above the exercise picture. You will see icons for facebook, digg, email, etc. The icon on the very right end is the printer icon. Click on this and it will take you to a different screen that lets you select print-out format. If it's a short document, choose 1 slide at a time, as the all-slides printout often splits pictures or text. Use the icon, & you won't get all the ads and junk from the original page.
