This week is my last week through Making the Cut (for the fourth time). I did another book workout today (Day 30), and plan on doing Day 29 & 30 again on Thursday and Friday. Honestly I didn't feel like today's workout was hard enough for me, so I ran sprints for 15 minutes after my 40 minute workout. Afterwards I was wondering what in the world I thinking!!!
I love learning different moves, so today I wanted to share some great ab workouts. Here are some of my favorite "Ab" moves to do. Two of these moves target your obliques (the side ab muscles).
This is a form of the side plank position. Lay on your side propping yourself onto one forearm. Using your core strength push yourself up into a straight line (Pictured in the second picture). Slowly lower yourself into starting position and repeat.
This too also works the obliques. As you can see in the picture I like to put my feel up against a wall. This helps me to stay balanced so that I can concentrate on my abs. Lay with your side on the body ball. Let your body kind of hang over a bit. Put your arms behind your head (this makes it harder). Using your side muscles pull yourself up. Hold for a count and lower yourself back down to starting position & Repeat.
ankles are on top of the ball. (Your body should be in push up position with your feet on the body ball). By contracting your abs, slowly bring your knees into your chest. Hold for a count and bring them back to starting position - Repeat.
