*This post was originally posted back in 2012. But hey, I still like training my abs in 2016…anyone else? 🙂 *
I am NOT a fan of working out my abs. To be honest, they are the weakest part of my body (legs coming in close second) so exercising those muscles is just plain hard.
Since I hate doing them, I make myself do it. A strong core is extremely important, especially after having kiddos when all your ab muscles are obsolete. I try to give my abs/core some attention at least a couple times a week.
Like I said, this workout is one I posted on YouTube back in 2012, but the exercises are still good to go! Speaking of, I should get back on YouTube..right?!
This workout should take you about 10 minutes if you run through it once. All you will need is a pair of light dumbbells and a swiss ball but if you don’t have equipment, I show you some modifications you can do.
Here are the exercise:
- Mountain Climbers
- Hand to Toe Touches– Switch sides after 30 seconds
- Side Plank Dips– Switch sides after 30 seconds
- Swiss Ball Passes
- Side Plank with Shoulder Raise– Switch sides after 30 seconds
- Russian Twists
- Supermans with Shoulder Press
That’s it! I hope you guys like it. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
