My Go-To “Feel It In the Morning” Ab Workout

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.

And guys.

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.
