One of the biggest things I’ve struggled with on my journey through fitness is finding the right workouts that target the right areas. When I work my ass off at the gym, I want to feel it the next morning. Being sore is like my affirmation that I didn’t waste two hours of my life on a workout that wasn’t effective.
For me, my trouble area is my stomach, so I like to incorporate abs into every workout I do. It seems, though, that I can never find an ab workout that really makes me work. I will do ab workout after ab workout and still not feel it the next day. A few days ago, I was scrolling through pinterest and, in a moment of complete frustration, threw together a “homemade” workout of my own.
I FEEL IT SO GOOD RIGHT NOW.
As a fitness writer, I feel like it is my obligation to share this workout with you, because it’s pretty bad ass and you will feel it when you’re finished. I promise.
For each set of three exercises you will repeat THREE times. The images below each workout demonstrate what each workout should look like.
Weighted Sit-Ups 20×3 (I typically use a 12lb medicine ball, but use whatever weight you’re comfortable with)
High Crunches 20×3
Leg Raises 20×3
Star Plank 45sec x3
Bicycle Crunches 30×3
Dumbbell Side-Bends 20×3 (each side)
Crunchy Frogs 15×3
You’re frickin welcome.
