Quick abs!

Here’s a quickie to get your core engaged. I did this one today after 10 minutes of cardio on the Versaclimber and a lower body workout, but you can also do it on it’s own. Folks – are you seeing a common theme here? I hope to give you chunks, or modules if you will, that can be sliced and diced together to meet your unique needs and schedule.

List of exercises

  1. Sit-ups
  2. Rope climbs
  3. Bicycles
  4. Alternating leg lifts
  5. Leg throw-downs
  6. Scissor kicks
  7. Horizontal scissor kicks
  8. 1 minute plank hold
  9. 30 second shift weight forward and backward in plank
  10. Alternating hip drops in plank, and then double time

Some tips before you go

  • Aim for 20 reps of each exercise.
  • If this is a struggle, try to make sure you do at least 10.
  • If this rep count is too easy, up it or add ankle weights for the leg lifts! Trust me…ankle weights will be your best friend.
  • Remember to breathe! Holding a plank doesn’t mean holding your breath.
