This is a quick and effective little ab workout that targets each part of your abs. You will totally feel the burn!
Here is a 5 minute ab workout that my non-preggo audience can certainly enjoy:
Side Plank Toe Touches: 3 sets of 10 reps per leg
Get into a side olank position. Using your forearm or your hand, lift your body up off of the ground. In one swift move, kick your top leg out to the front of you body and touch your toe. Bring your leg back to starting position and repeat.
Reverse Crunches: 3 sets of 15 reps
Laying on the ground on your back, lift both legs into the air. Placing your arms out to your sides, lift the lower half of your body and your legs upward as if you are trying to curl your entire body backward. Lower your body back downward and repeat.
Downward Dog Kicks: 3 sets of 10 reps per leg
Get into downward dog positon. Lift one leg up into the air. Bring it back down and repeat with the opposite leg.
Cross Body Mountain Climbers: 3 sets of 10 reps
Get into a mountain climber positon. Instead of moving your legs forward, alternate each leg to the side of your body, crossing over to “touch” the opposite side.
Plank Side Crunches: 3 sets of 10 reps per side
Get into a plank position either on the elbows or hands. Slowly bring your right leg up towards your side as if you were crunching your right side. Alternate and repeat for the left side.
