Abs on Abs on Abs

Abs. We all have them. Like it's part of being human to have abdominal muscles, but we all want them to look and feel better. Am I right?? I swear there are times in my life where I have been so stoked on my abs and then there are times that I don't even want to look at my stomach haha! One thing I do know when it comes to abs (and this is true when speaking about fitness in general), and that is the importance of being consistent. And knowing and understanding that it's a process, not something that happens overnight. Getting that six pack or those toned abs you are wanting takes hard work, discipline, eating right, and doing that over and over again.

Today, I thought I would share a quick glimpse into one of the ab circuits that I do both at the gym, and at home. One thing I love about working out my abs is that I can do most of the workouts I want to without equipment and right in the comfort of my own home, or out in the yard, or the park, or the gym. Really anywhere there is a bit of open space is free game for an ab workout. This particular circuit I am sharing is one I do often and it brings the sweat!! As I have mentioned before, when I know I am going to get my sweat on each day, I love having the right activewear to wear during my workouts. I continue to find Kohl's to be a fantastic place to find all of my activewear needs. The selection of shoes, shorts, tops, tanks, and sports bras is excellent and at an awesome price point! For today's workout I went again with a full Nike ensemble, but strayed from my normal all black look and gave it a pop of color with the baby blue. Brod was stoked because he loves the University of North Carolina and spent a lot of time on their campus working with them, so he loved that I sported the baby blue shorts for this particular workout. So even husbands/boyfriends will love the activewear at Kohl's!

As for today's circuit (do the entire circuit 2 times through) below is the breakdown as to what I did, do your best to make sure to keep your core tight during each exercise. This might seem silly but the way I think about it is sucking in my belly button through to my back, keeping my back flat and my core tight:

1. Lower ab crunch- 20 reps each side

2. Leg raises- 20 reps

3. Toe taps- 20 reps

4. Scissors- 20 reps

5. Bicycles- 30 reps, 15 each side

6. Alternating toe touches (not the toe touches a cheerleader does)- 20 reps each side

7. Straight body crunch- 20 reps

8. Plank- 1 minute

I hope this circuit is one that you will give a try! I will continue to share more specific workouts and glimpses into my fitness journey here on the blog and other platforms! Thanks so much following! I love you all!
