A FITNESS YouTube star who swapped the board room for the gym has revealed her secret to a flat stomach.

Chloe Ting has built up a huge social media following with millions tuning in for her simple and time efficient workouts.

The 34-year-old has now revealed the exercises you need to get rippling abs – and the only equipment you need is a mat and a dumbbell.

Chloe's ten minute routine involves 18 different exercises and many women have posted before and after pictures showing their progress on her programme.

The fitness influencer previously worked as a corporate statistician before building her 20 million followers, she now has the sixth most-watched YouTube channel in Australia

It's advisable before doing any workout that you warm up with strecthes to loosen the body up and to raise your heart rate slightly, especially if you have been sat down all day.

Chloe's workout is made up of a number of exercises, working for 15 to 30 seconds with five to 10 seconds rest.

She starts with in and out twists and explains: "While holding your dumbbell in a seated position, pull your knees towards your chest and extend your legs out then bring your dumbbell from side to side, and then repeat."

Next up is alternated scissor hip lifts.

To do this, lift your legs high with the dumbbell lifted above your chest. Then lift your legs up, with one leg closer to you.

You need to make sure you engage your core for this exercise to be done, and to do this you can imagine squeezing your stomach muscles as tight as possible.

Then it's a sit up press, to do this lay on the floor with your hands above your head. Then sit up bringing the dumbbell up and repeat.

Using the dumbbell, the next exercise is a plank drag through. Getting into a plank position, make sure your dumbbell is on one side of you.

Then pull the weight through your arms, alternating hands. Try and keep your hips steady.

Chloe then goes on to feature other exercises such as climber taps, and for each exercise she also offers a low impact version for people who don't have a weight or who are less advanced.

Next she demonstrates single leg cycles and bent leg crunches which she says will "help you feel amazing".

Then a similar exercise with single leg drop and crunches, followed by side plank dips on both the left and right.

Double crunches, roll up twists, single leg crunches and glute bridges are up next.

To finish off the work out, Chloe demonstrates dead bugs and plank jacks.

She says that even though her workouts might seem "clickbaity" they do work if you follow her programme.

"You're not going to get abs, grow a booty, grow biceps magically from 1 or 2 videos, in 1, 2, 3 or 4 weeks cause everyone is different.

"I've explain multiple times throughout videos throughout my channel over years that it takes time and lots of factors, so don't take a video title out of context."

Chloe explained: "I am not a medical professional and what I share on my channel are my views and what has worked for myself. Your health and safety is the utmost importance so find out what works for you."

Many of Chloe's followers have praised her plans, and she shares their progress on her Instagram page.
