Summer Abs Workout

Happy Monday!  I feel like I’m in posting withdrawals!  Moving chaos made my regular posting schedule difficult.  But alas, I’m glad to be in a new place for a couple months (we’re staying with a friend until our new house closes in mid-July), so now I have a full kitchen again (with new recipes coming!) and back to the old routine.

So I wanted to post another workout, as I haven’t done one in a bit.  I’m only dreaming of the gym at this point.  Walking (with my SPD pelvis issues) is plenty for me at the moment at 25 weeks pregnant, but I CAN’T WAIT to get back to the gym once little miss arrives!

These are all my favorite ab exercises in one workout.  If you’re a beginner, you can do less than 3 sets, or lower the amount of reps, but if you’re fairly fit, you should be able to do it no problem.  Remember, if it hurts, something isn’t right, and always go at your own pace….but push yourself and get outside your comfort zone.

Your abs should be good and sore a day or two after this one.

Another quick note: On the stick twists, these are meant to be done with no weight or very little weight.  Weighted side bends and twists are not a good idea.  Most women don’t want to make their waist thicker, they want to make it smaller, so avoid weighted side crunches and twists.  Just my 2 cents 😉
