Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, hiking, health, and fitness. Enjoy!

WOW #2 (Abs)

WOW #2 (Abs)

Workout of the Week.png

I hope you had a chance to get last week's WOW in! This week I wanted to focus on abs. This will be a quick ab circuit that you can do on its own or add it to the end of a workout, and it focuses on all parts of your midsection: upper abs, lower abs, and obliques.

You have two options for how you would like to track your sets:
Level 1: Count reps (10 full reps per move)
Level 2: Count seconds (30 seconds of as many full reps you can do - don't cheat the move just to get more reps in!)
For both levels, minimize the amount of rest between each move so that you are essentially doing the full circuit back to back. You will get a minute of rest after the fuff

Here is the circuit:
1. Crunches with legs at 90 degrees
2. Lower ab crunch with legs at 90 degrees (place hands above your head on the ground to stabilize you)
3. In and Out crunches
4. Right side heel touch (crunch, then squeeze obliques so that you touch your heels with hands)
5. Left side heel touch (crunch, then squeeze obliques so that you touch your heels with hands)
6. 30 Second plank
***Rest about 1 minute, repeat the circuit 2 more times***

For those who are visual learners, I've borrowed some diagrams from Google Images to show you the circuit visually:
