Abs Part 2

Abs are one of my favorite parts of the body to workout because there are so many different excercises that can be done for them. Here is a quick 15 minute routine focusing on your sides that will leave your abs feeling strong and toned!

50 right-side abs: Lay on your right side with your knees slightly bent in and touch your elbow to your thigh.

50 left-side abs: Lay on your left side with your knees slightly bent in and touch your elbow to thigh.

3 sets of 15 rep side-bends: Grab a weight that you are comfortable using, I use a 45 plate, and stand with your feet hip-wide distance apart. Bend down on your left side bringing the weight to the middle of your leg and stand slowly back up. Repeat 15 times and switch the weight to your right side to work that side out. Take a 30 second break and do two more sets of this.

150 Bicycles: Lay on the ground and bring your legs up in the air, bent at a 90-degree angle. Bring your right elbow to your left knee and quickly switch bringing your left elbow to your right knee. Each time you hit your elbow to knee that counts as one!

Bar Twists: Grab a weighted bar (most gyms have these ranging from 5-15 LBS) and place it behind your head while standing. Position your feet so they are shoulder-length apart. Starting from the center, twist the bar all the way towards the right, and then quickly towards the opposite side on the left. Continue moving back and forth counting to 50. Note that one full movement from right to left counts as one. Take a 30 second break and repeat this for two more sets.

Hope you enjoy this side ab work out! ? #you’vegotthis
