3, 2, 1… ABS BLAST!

Happy Workout Wednesday all ya’ll beautiful people!

It’s time to put our ABS BLAST workout together! Who’s excited!

All exercises ten reps! Be careful not to push against your head or neck with hands because you can hurt yourself!


Crunches – Begin by lying face up on the floor with knees bent feet flat on the floor your hands can be behind your head, next to your neck, or crossed over the chest. Curl your shoulders towards your knees and then slowly drop back down.



Lying Oblique Crunches – Roll your legs to the left side keeping your back in the same position as before. Crunch toward the right leading with your elbow up. Crunch as high as you then slowly drop back down into the starting position.



Lying Oblique Crunches – Roll your bottom half to the other side and repeat the crunches.



Table Top Crunch – Lie on your back with your legs up at a 90 degree angle, as if your heels were resting on a table top. Your hands can be behind your head, neck, or crossed over the chest. Curl your shoulders towards your knees and then slowly drop back down.



Right Crossed Leg Cross Body Crunch – Lower legs so feet are flat on the floor then cross your right ankle over your left knee. Lift your head and shoulders off the floor bringing your left shoulder towards your right knee and then slowly back down.


Left Crossed Leg Cross Body Crunch – Switch sides and repeat for 10 reps.




Bent Knee Reverse Crunch– Roll your bottom half back up so your knees are pointing at the ceiling. Pull knees up toward chest lifting booty up then slowly lower legs back to starting position.



Straight Leg Hip Raise – Put your arms flat on the ground and raise your legs straight up into the air turning your body into a giant right angle. Elevate your pelvis to raise your booty from the floor then slowly lower back to the ground.


Beginner Russian Twist – Feet flat on the ground and elevate your upper body so that it creates an imaginary V-shape with your thighs. Your arms should be fully extended in front of you perpendicular to your torso and with the hands clasped. Twist your torso to the right side keeping your arms are parallel with the floor and your knees, then move to the left side and back to the right.

Staggered V-Up – Make sure that your head, legs, and bottom are all in contact with the floor. Slowly lift your legs straight up in the air, keeping your legs straight and not bending at the knees. With your leg still in the air perform the beginning of a crunch by curling the shoulders off the ground. HOLD this position while you bring your legs down, then finish the crunch.


If you were counting, that’s 100 hundred crunches you just did!!! Crazy right? Try to do this just one time through first thing in the morning 3-5 days a week and see what happens!

That’s it for this week! Next week we’re going to revisit the booty portion of my favorite morning workout to give you a complete lower body body weight only workout that will leave you huffing and puffing!
