Kate Middleton’s ‘favourite exercise for a toned tummy has been revealed’ – and it’s so quick and simple

Kate Middleton never fails to wow with her sleek figure and sensational outfits, and it’s safe to say we’ve been absolutely in awe of her style ever since she joined the Royal family.

From bra strap hacks to recycled outfits, we know a thing or two about how the mum-of-three looks so good, but what does she do to keep fit?

Well, we know that the Duchess of Cambridge, 38, was a dab hand at hockey whilst at the University of St Andrews, and she was also a member of a running club and enjoyed rowing.

And, as well as this, the royal is sure to keep fit what with all of her public engagements and busy life as a mum of three young children.

However, it's also been reported before that Kate’s favourite way to keep herself in shape is through a number of different sports.

The Daily Mail once explained that an insider said Kate will run as often as possible, and that she'd sometimes run with Charlotte, when the adorable little girl, now aged five, was in her buggy, with their dog Lupo at her side.

The Duchess also enjoys tennis and the source explained that the tennis courts at Anmer Hall in Norfolk, where Kate is currently isolating with husband Prince William and their children, "has been the scene of many hard-fought matches, singles and doubles.”

And it turns out when running and tennis isn’t on the cards, then swimming might be.

However, when it comes to tightening her muscles and maintaining her toned tummy, Kate reportedly relies on one exercise – the plank!

Despite planking not being the most desirable of exercises, the source continued to say that Kate is pretty nifty with the workout, saying: “There are three elements, the basic plank, the side plank and the prone sky dive, all of which are positions Kate can hold for 45 seconds or longer and repeat at least ten times each.”

Fitness expert Alex Crockford spoke exclusively to OK! online about the importance of planking and its many benefits when it comes to working out and obtaining a toned tummy.

Alex has transformed the lives of thousands across the world through his revolutionary #CROCKFIT method and believes the plank is a very fitting exercise for the Duchess, due to her busy schedule.

He explained: “There are so many benefits to the plank exercise. It's a great full body workout targeting the core and abs and holding your body in place, toning your stomach and strengthening the middle part of your body.

“Planking is also a good lower and upper body workout focusing on the quads (front of the legs), glutes and shoulder muscles which are all an important part of the exercise adding strength to your whole body.”

He added: “This workout would be a great pick for Kate Middleton as it’s one she can do in the comfort of her home and at any time. Due to her busy schedule, she could also do this exercise multiple times a day and still keep fit.

"Also, the plank exercise is great for Kate (and any women) to strengthen deep core muscles and maintain a strong pelvic floor. Another benefit is it’s short but high-intensity which is ideal if you have a busy day planned and duties to tend to.”

As well as working out, Kate is said to stick to a breakfast routine which includes a smoothie packed with vitamins. The Duchess will then reportedly enjoy a salad for lunch and snacks on skin-boosting goji berries in the meantime.
