Schedule for Today’s Intense Ab Workouts
Boat Twist Reach (1:26)
From a seated position on the floor extend your legs in the air as high as you can get them. Put one hand behind your head while the other reaches for the floor and repeat. 30 seconds per side.
Laying on your back with your feet on the floor, place your palms facedown under your butt and sit on your wrists. Bring your legs straight up and rotate them clockwise in unison, sweeping down toward the floor, over, and up to 90 degrees for one full revolution. 30 seconds per direction.
Phelan Twist (4:13)
From a seated position with your legs extended, cross your arms and recline roughly 45 degrees. Next, rotate your upper body to the left, return to center, and follow with the right. Repeat for 60 seconds.
Draw Bridge Lift (5:39)
Laying on your back with your feet on the floor, place your palms facedown under your butt and sit on your wrists. Straighten your legs, keeping them just off the floor, then open them. Bring them back together and raise them straight above you, then lift your lower back off the floor. Repeat for 60 seconds.
Side Plank Hip Drop (7:03)
Position yourself on your right side, and place your right elbow on the floor beneath your right shoulder. Your palm should be facedown. With your legs straight, stack your left foot atop the right and lift your hip off the floor. Extending your left arm straight in the air, bring your hip down and tap the floor. Repeat for 30 seconds on each side.
Bug Bicycle Crunch (8:38)
Laying on your back, straighten your right leg and extend your left arm past your head. Start by bringing your left foot toward you and reaching for it with your right hand. Alternate the move, keeping your shoulders off the floor. Repeat for 60 seconds, varying pace for difficulty.
Teddy Tappers (10:11)
Assuming a forearm plank position, shuffle your feet forward and backward, bringing your shoulders over your wrists at one end of the move and over your elbows at the other. Make sure your forearms remain parallel. 60 seconds.
