Friday Motivation Ten Minute Abs

I love teaching my Friday weight training class and try to put a different spin on it every week.  Class will start with total body weight training and then I plan to finish with this quick and effective ab routine.  Do this three to four times per week and tweak your diet with a specific goal to drink more water and eliminate processed foods. You’ll be surprised how quickly you start to see results!

ABS/ CORE CIRCUIT –

Perform each exercise for one minute and try to complete entire circuit 2x

1.  Glider Plank Walk & Knee Tuck –This is one of my all time favorite.  To work the abs efficiently you need to engage the stability of the core.  This is done with gliders but you can use small towels under your feet or your socks will work to allow your feet to slide while performing the exercise. Perform this exercise for 1 minute

 

2.  Burpee + Four Mountain ClimbersI love this exercise.  It works the entire body and the mountain climbers really challenge your abs/core. 

Perform this exercise for 1 minute

 

3.  Up Down Plank – This exercise is tougher than it looks.  Try leading with one arm for thirty seconds and then change lead arms to complete the minute.  Modify on your knees if needed.

Perform this exercise for 1 minute

 

4.  Plank Jacks With Knee Tuck-  Love this but it’s a tough exercise for one minute. Challenge yourself!

Perform this exercise for 1 minute

 

5.  Pilates Double Leg Stretch–  Pilates is an amazing way to get your abs into shape and your core strong.  Try this for 30 seconds, hug your knees into the chest and recover for 10 seconds and then finish with 20 more seconds of the exercise.

Perform this exercise for 1 minute
