Weekly Workout: New Ab Workout Routine

Hello my fitness friends. How is Monday treating you? Today I am sharing with you my new ab workout. After spending several hours on YouTube, I came up with this amazing ab workout! There are only five moves that you repeat 2-3 times, but it is a serious ab workout. After the first round, I can already feel it working my abs. Now I'll stop blabbing to you all, and tell you all what I do.



30 vertical toe touches: Begin by laying on your back with your feet vertical in the air. Lay your arms out wide next to you, and then pull them up to reach your toes.

30 bicycle crunches: While still laying on your back, bend your legs at your knees to make a 90 degree angle. Place your hands behind your head and begin to kick each feet. With each foot kick, crunch to the opposite side. Make sure to do 30 on each side.

30 slow mountain climbers: Begin in a plank position with your hands placed on the ground directly below your shoulders. Slowly pull each knee to your chest, and then place it back on the ground. Doing this exercise slowly will ensure a better workout of your abs and your shoulders.

30 second plank: Move from your mountain climber position down to your elbows, and hold the position. Make sure your back is completely flat. (Tip: squeeze your abs to keep your back straight and your butt down.)

30 elbow to knee crunches: Lie on your back with your feet slightly bent. Pull one knee to your chest as you crunch with your opposite elbow. Repeat on the other side.

Do this routine as many times as you can a week for some rock solid abs. It's super quick and only takes a couple minutes!

Stay classy,
Molly
