Current Favorite Ab Circuit

November 13, 2014

So lately I’ve been eating a lot of fruit ^_^. It just makes me feel so satisfied. In my previous post, I talk about what fruits I am currently obsessing over and why they’re so amazing for us!

With only 14 days left before Thanksgiving and 42 days left before Christmas, I feel indulging on fruit is a great way keep our tummies slim before the big feasts ^_^ But what else?

Ab training!!!IMG_1927Lately, I’ve been doing an ab circuit after my weight training or cardio session. I feel that my abs aren’t as strong as I’d like them to be so in order to improve them, I train them just as hard as I would with any other muscle. What are your favorite ab workouts? Here are mine ^_^

Hanging Leg Raises

Hanging from a secure bar, I lift my legs to crunch middle, left and right side making sure I engage my obliques and my abs.

3 sets of 15-20 reps

Russian Twists

Using an 8 pound medicine ball, I face forward at all times twisting only my torso to the left and right maintaining control and make sure my ab muscles are engaged. (Tip: Don’t hold your breath!)

3 sets of 20 reps (10 twists on each side)

Medicine Ball Leg Raises 

While laying down on an exercise mat, securely hold a medicine ball over your head and stretch out your arms and legs. Crunch upwards keeping your arms straight and raise your feet to the medicine ball. Lower your legs and upper body to the starting position.

3 sets of 20 reps
